HOW TO CHANGE THE SHAPE OF A CABINET


 
 
I think it was last fall when I first saw this mini cupboard, it was attached to an email asking
if I could give it a makeover. I was intrigued and let her know something could definitely be done
to update and beautify the piece.
 
Fast forward 3/4 of a year and the owner has changed plans and sold me the cabinet as is was.
 
 
I had a special set of legs put a side. Originally taken from a big broken down coffee table, the legs
 were gorgeous but the shape was a bit different. I got underneath the cabinet and checked
out how they would work, conclusion was they would attach well and create a great new style.
 
 
I installed 3 small trim pieces to the top edge making a crown and changing the cabinets shape.
 
 
 I added to this new style by removing the simple handles and replacing
them with vintage French Provincial ones.

 
The cabinet even came with a skeleton key, it's not the original and
doesn't work perfectly but it adds to the overall glamour.
 
 
The drawers got antique drop pulls left over from an older project. When your hardware is super
 fancy you can paint it the same color as the furniture and it will still pop and look stunning!
 
 
This cabinet is loved again and fits perfectly in it's new home.
