I TURNED SPIDERMAN SHABBY CHIC - bathroom cabinet



I'd like to take a quick moment to impress upon you the extent of
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 THRIFT SHOP HOPS



For the back I used tongue and groove bead board
bought at a yard sale.

Then the last few details were added ...


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.
