Transforming a Cabinet from the Junk Pile

If you follow me, you know that we have bulk pickup here every month. A couple of months ago, I found this one nearby.

It needed so much help, but of course, I like the challenge.

My husband, just gave me that look (like I am crazy).

It must have been setting out since it was so filthy. The inside was the worst.

Something sticky was also there. I turned the hose on it. I had no choice.

The top shelf was sticky and there was sand in it as well. I have not mentioned the color of the original cabinet! Pinkish/purplish something!

I didn't like the top of the cabinet which was funny because that was the only part my husband liked. Go figure. While he was at work, off came the top. I knew I could use it in more places with the top off.

It was not easy to get it off. There were screws everywhere. I finally got it off, but it left a number of marks on the top.

I sanded and sanded. Then I had to use some filler and more sanding.

(I seem to have deleted the pictures of fixing and painting the cabinet, sorry)

I painted it with Anne Sloane Antique White and added the clear wax.

It turned out great and even my husband liked it.

I had some knobs that were off of my sons cabinet when he was a little boy. They were white porcelain, perfect for this cabinet.

It now sits in my front entry.
