damage there was on this piece of furniture.
What was I thinking?
better yet ...
What were they thinking?
Both sides of this little night stand looked like this.
This stuff inside the drawer was glued down.
You do realize the child that owned this could now be grown up and watching me fix this.
Eventually I got it cleaned up using acetone on the ink, WD-40 on the stickers, sand paper on anything too tough and finally a good wash with soap and water, then repainted.
That's when the transformation into something new and exciting really started.
I used an small kitchen cabinet door and cut the bottom profile to match then hinged it in place
Next I used some more kitchen doors to build the sides of a shelf tower.
I topped the tower with this wooden wall hook thingy that I picked up on one of our
For the back I used tongue and groove bead board bought at a yard sale.

A piece of ornate metal work from a trellis and some glass hardware for the
cupboard and drawer.
She is now the most attractive bathroom storage cabinet in the land.
I have a feeling I might have to do a few more of these storage towers.
