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!|
