China Cabinet Re-do

It all began 10 years ago. I needed a cabinet to house all of my fabrics and craft items (well, at least a lot of them). So I purchased this cabinet for $40!

(This is about 6 years ago. My grandson photo-bombing!)

About a year ago while moving it out of storage to our home, the top half of the cabinet fell off of the trailer at 60mph! All of the glass in the doors/windows of the cabinet was broken and the very top that housed the light fixture on the inside was destroyed! The glass shelves were packed and stored separately…whew!

I continued to use the total cabinet and moved it from FL to our new home in NC. We disposed of the top part of this cabinet and kept the bottom cabinet piece. Oh, and I kept the glass shelves…I’ll figure out something for it’s use, I’m sure I will!

I suggested to hubby, it would be a great tv and cable/Xbox console stand and cabinet!

So, I removed the 2 doors,

…and painted it white.

And, hubby drilled holes in the back to feed wires through.

We will put decorative knobs to the center non-working door. I’m pleased with the turnout!

I love older furniture because of the craftsmanship and use of quality materials. The furniture made 50+ years ago would last you literally a lifetime. This cabinet is about 40 years old and will probably last another 40 years!

Thanks for reading!
