This cabinet is literally RIGHT at the top of my stairs. I smile each time I walk by it. Makes me so happy.
From a piece of falling apart antique cabinet with no doors or legs to something usable. THAT is my kind of transformation.
It is not without it's flaws. The last coat of clear went on hard and drippy. We finally did win after some sanding.
I am sure my Mom would say the same about the doors.
When I called my Dad to tell him to check out the completed project photo I sent him he yelled HEY GRETCH GUESS WHAT THOSE DOORS WORKED.
They were really tight fitting in the glass. Makes you a bit nervous to be shoving stained glass into a door frame. THE MAN won however and it's just plain ole beautiful. Here is the back of the door with some light. Just so pretty.
Of course you want a peek in side, right?
As with anything, if you make your stuff easier to get to, you use more of your stuff! I have had my stamps "put away" in a box and usually avoid using them. Now I can get to them, it's a whole lot easier! Already had some out!
Stamps, Inks, Ribbon, Modge Podge hidden away in a lunch pail and coffee filters.
YES coffee filters. They made rock star flowers and are great for holding little things when you dye them.
Thanks for awesome-sauce doors Mom and Dad and for inspiring me to paint up that old antique cabinet. This piece will grow old with me!
