Good Monday Morning!! This is a quickie post today with a project that has
taken forever and a day to get to....one of those that was constantly staring at me everytime I went into the garage! I knew it wouldn't take very long to complete but other stuff kept getting priority......please tell me you know how THAT is!
Okay...what we have here is a tall wood cabinet/bookcase that someone had used as a TV cabinet (see the hole?...if you peek closer that's Mr. OTM hiding behind it!...I just noticed that!) Anyway...it's a drab olive green, has a piece or dental molding at the top and some adjustable shelves~ more than is in this photo.PRESTO CHANG-O! Simple yet much much better! What do you think?
Here's what we did.....
1. Took off the old back with the hole and replaced it with a piece of wide plank paneling (prepainted, Lowes $14.93 sheet...have left overs)
2. Sanded all over and repainted with standard white, satin finish , 2 coats
3. Took off the dental molding strip and added a chunkier piece of antique chippy molding from my " I know I will use this for something someday stash!"
4. Sanded and distressed the whole piece and put shelves back in.
Here it is for sale in my booth at the Sleepy Poet.
As you can see it holds a bunch of stuff~ hum , maybe I should have put this in MY computer/craft/office/extra bedroom!
