Here is the recap I promised of all the different parts that went into this very 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 I was 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. (see photos above)
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
Shelves made from a bookcase headboard
Curved tops made from another headboard
Footboard side walls and bed slats for more shelving
Glass Hutch Doors
Cast Iron Stove Legs
Handles from an old dresser
and finally Chair Arms for something fancy
I want to thank everyone who continues to support me and let you know
I couldn't do this without your wonderful comments and encouraging words!
Lastly here are just a few updates of treasures that can be found at
