When I introduced you to the amazing set of shelves I finished
I also promised a recap of the parts that went into this long project.
Let me start by saying when you re-purpose furniture and you are firm on only building
with recycled items, finding multiples of what you need is not easy.
I acquired the base cabinets for this project about 9 months ago at the auction.
It looked like a dresser when we were bidding on it but come to find out it was 2 little
sets of drawers stacked and only attached at the back with wood braces.
4 months later I devised the plan but like many things that take 9 months it was
difficult, sometimes painful, and seemed like it would never end.
Strange Little Dressers
Foot Boards & Bed Slats
Glass Hutch Doors
Cast Iron Stove Legs
