Alrighty! It’s time to let the cat out of the bag !
Remember the old cabinet I posted last week , it looked like this. I must reinforce that this cabinet was really one step from the garbage. It was cracked everywhere, warped and filled with holes.
I was waiting for just such a cabinet for this project !
Since I didn’t need any of the insides of this cabinet, we cleared out everything, plus the drawers, and just used the drawer fronts.
The drawer fronts were then applied to this piece of wood, which will later be hinged to the bottom of the cabinet.
Now for a coat of KILZ Primer and a very LIGHT coat of white. Since this cabinet was in terrible shape there really wasn’t any choice but to treat it as a rustic piece of furniture. Embrace it’s flaws.
The previous TIN handles were just NOT gonna cut it! We couldn’t reuse them if we wanted to.
Because of the nature of this project I really didn’t want to spend any money on it. I searched the garage for something that I could use for handles. Right in the corner of the garage sat a box of firewood and branches from the tree in my yard. How perfect!
Isn’t she beautiful ?
Ok, another angle…
But what makes her so different you ask ?
Surely this is just another cabinet… no ?
Lets look from this angle..
and who’s that going to check it out ??
Hey Coco !
So lets just turn back the clock a bit.
First we had to make sure there was a vent. Not only to let in a little light but some much needed air.
Then of course there’s the cat flap, which was the only money I spent on this cabinet. Around $12.
Here’s a peek with me holding up the cat flap for a look inside.
LOVE the cracked floor!
So there you have it.
The cat is out of the bag! (or in my case.. the washroom)
Here was Coco’s litter box before ( I’m ashamed to say), in a bathroom that is desperate need of a makeover. (That will be coming soon.)
**No real, fine furniture was hurt during the making of this project*
