BATHROOM STORAGE CABINET - repurposed glass door

One evening I spotted a salvaged glass door leaning against a hedge. I was inspired to start creating something around this lonely pane of glass. 

The door was long and narrow and when I looked at it I
envisioned glass bottles stashed behind it. Cotton balls,
Q-tips, and bars of soap in jars, and soft folded towels.

I start with a base cabinet that was strong and heavy.
Heavy enough to take the weight of the glass door opening.

I had a very solid little cabinet with a single drawer that I
 added legs to. Both the cabinet and the legs were made of
 heavy hardwoods perfect to anchor the whole unit.

I built an upper cabinet with lighter pine wood to keep it
lighter than the bottom. I attached the glass door to the upper cabinet.

It is built in two pieces and can be moved in two pieces,
but it is attached at the back with metal straps when in use.


I then painted it in a Pure White and lightly lightly distressed
 the edges. I finished the painted surfaces with AS clear wax.

There is a lot of open storage but also a drawer to tuck away smaller items.
She sure turned out great, a perfect beauty for the bathroom.
