It would be sitting it on the vanity cabinet in front of this huge 80's unframed mirror, so height was not a problem, but I needed it to be about six inches deep and about twenty-four inches wide.
When I found this at my favorite Thrift store for $5.00, Finds Fabulous Resale. I thought it would work ... although I needed the doors at the bottom ... so I flipped it,
(well, just turned it up side down) to make it work.
It was well made pine wood, likely 70's/80's.
It was designed to be hung on the wall, but no indication if it had ever been hung. All the edges were beveled, so the first thing was to make a base for it so it would safely stand.
I shopped my woodworking shop and found this piece of an old treadle sewing machine top that was the perfect fit after I cut the depth down.
I put a thin shelf up higher using a scrap piece of wood flooring.It also needed a back.
I will find another use for the scrap pieces.
I used a nickle for spacing between the boards, whitewashed them but later painted them with the soft minty green of the cabinet.
Hot steam will swell the soft grain and scratch will almost disappear. Paint covered it easily.
Stenciled the doors using cosmetic foam wedges for the Dollar Tree. The stencil color matches the color of the mirror frames, the header and the little wooden tray for Mr. Z'z razor, etc.
The reflection of the sliding "
barn vintage door" closes off the shower/toilet area.
Colors are not exactly true because of the fluorescent lights.
Hope you enjoyed my make-over of this cute little cabinet.
