REMAKING A PRIMITIVE KITCHEN CUPBOARD





This huge project was done for a friend of GG's. It was something they found on a trip and they loved it enough to bring it all the way home. Now it was my turn to update it.






BEFORE                                 AFTER

I had thought about keeping the arborite but it was too brittle
 to work around. Dealing with this area took a full day in its 
self and was a dirty process.


The pull out cutting board was lost and the doors 
were replaced with other salvaged finds.


The cabinet was one solid tall unit that I couldn't get into my
 work room. So the first step was to cut it into 2 pieces 
outside before ripping it into more pieces inside.


This area received the most work. The back section
was completely replaced and the side panels are a cover up 
job. All antique quarter inch dark stained oak panels painted
 in old white. The distressing is perfect, see below.


This rich dark stained surface is another piece 
that was completely new to the piece.

The cupboard is 84.5" tall, so tall the top shelf is almost 
unusable on a regular basis. I decided to make the
top shelf simple open display.


The upper doors are also open to display treasures.


The back panels had previous damage so I replaced them.
The interior spaces are lined with a chartreuse and cream wallpaper.



I transferred some graphics to the bottom doors and 
made them look like old fashioned store bins with vintage
 hardware. This project took a several weeks, longer than I
 had thought but I am very happy with the results.
