The bottom of the cabinet was trashed so the top was cut off with the hopes of one day recreating something with it.
Well the other day during the process of cleaning out the storage area my Dad decided to toss the cabinet figuring it was project he'd never get around to messing with.
However, I hated to see it go. So needless to say I grabbed it out of the junk pile.
Now what to do with it?
Needs a little cleaning, huh?As I said it's only half of a cabinet.
I have the top half which is a 2 door cabinet with a flour sifter. Below that is a storage compartment with a roll top door. I also have the counter top work place, 3 drawers and two lower cabinet doors.
So my question is what shall I do with them.
My first thought is to create a functional desktop that would look awesome in a kitchen.
Hang the top half of the cabinet on a wall.
Use the wooden counter top piece as a desk.( I'd have to create some sort of "legs" for this!)
Use the drawers for storage. I'm already envisioning the smaller drawer being used for some of my favorite sewing supplies.
And lastly the two remaining cabinet doors could maybe be used as decoration on the kitchen walls. They of course need something to pizzazz them up a bit first.
The wood isn't oak so I'd just strip it down and repaint it.
My thought was retro...maybe white trimmed in red, turquoise or even pink???
The second option is to just pull the flour sifter out of the cabinet and sell it on Ebay and then trash the rest of the cabinet.
So what do you all think?
What would you do with it?
I'd love to hear any ideas that you may have!
