The remake started with removing all the hardware, doors, and drawers and getting the piece structurally sound again. Once I got on to the cupboard doors I quickly realized that they would need to be remade all together, with the condition they were in they were irreparable(this was a big project). Remaking the doors required the use of a table saw, a router, a jig saw, a sander, and that pretty design you see on them, I did by hand with a dremel-took forever!!!! I also decided the drawers would need to be reconstructed as well, so I ripped off the face trashed the inside and got cutting with some MDF. I put the drawers together with a biscuit joiner to get the extra clearance on the sides to add in some metal sliders. I hate it when drawers don't have inside hardware because every time you slide them open they lean forward and even sometimes fall out completely. I didn't want to play that balancing game so rollers were purchased and installed. For color I decided to stain the top, paint the bottom and then glaze the whole thing once the stain and paint were dry. After that set, I put the hardware back on and made some last little adjustments. What do you think? I love how it turned out. Definitely not perfect, but I love the character it brings to the room.
Do you like some of my other additions?
(lamp was thrifted-shade made by me-letters made by me-picture thrifted and frame redone by me-little glass bowel thrifted just added some paint on the bottom side)
