Cabinet from repurposed table
I bought a table this past weekend at a garage sale. I love garage sales and my biggest weaknesses are the 3 F’s-Furniture, Frames, and Fabric. I spotted this table, liked the looks of it and so purchased and brought it home to restore.
The vintage table reminded me of something that my grandparents had in their home.
This vintage table needed a little help especially since the table part was rotted through and couldn’t be salvaged but the top shelving unit and the frame was still quite useable. With a little bit of elbow grease and a hammer and screwdriver the furniture was pulled apart.
I commenced sanding the cabinet and while doing so was trying to think what I had that I could use to make a bottom to the now bottomless cabinet. My mind instantly went to the wall of cabinet doors that had been taken down which I mentioned in a previous post.
The picture below is the cabinet pulled apart with sanding still in progress.
I eventually got all my pieces to the cabinet sanded and could get to the fun part…painting. I chose an off white color for the cabinet. Some old keys and jute I had lying around became the new cabinet pulls. After a few coats of paint, some new hardware and putting it all together, a new cabinet was born.
I haven’t quite decided if I’m going to use it for an entryway piece to store things by the front door or if it’s going into my workroom, but I like how it turned out and can’t wait to repurpose the bottom portion of this used to be table.
