I went to my garage, excited to pull out those wall cabinets and get started. In my mind I imagined the dinning room table pushed up to those window seats and the family sitting down for a meal...how romantic! But it always is, in our heads isn't it? When I pulled the cabinets from the garage, reality set in as I tried to sit on the wall cabinets and instead of feeling like I was in a Louisa May Alcott novel I felt more like Norm from Cheers when I sat tall enough to reach a bar counter and have a beer!
Well, I pulled them out of the garage, I had to do something with them. Here's just the something I did.
|Look at this Beauty!!
|I removed the door.
|Then I flipped this bad boy upside-down.
|Cut the center from the cabinet door, then primed, puttied and painted the frame.
|I polyurethaned the table top that I cut and added hinges so that the top flip open for extra storage!
|Screwing in the hinges.
|Attached hinges on the other side of the cabinet door frame.
|I used push pins to put fabric in the frame. Now I can switch it out when I want to change it up a little bit.
|Backside of the door.
|Notice the gap between the fabric.
|I used brown ribbon to cover the gap.
|A wall cabinet happily situated on the floor!
