Upcycled Pine Dry Sink Cabinet 1/15/14

Although this small pine cabinet is a good size and in great condition it was looking a bit dated and in need of some jazzing up. 

I started by adding  an old wall shelf with a drawer to the top of the cabinet.  This brought it to an appropriate height so I could switch out the towel bar for a mirror.  I chose classic […]

Upcycled Furniture 7/10/13

Ok, a few more pieces of upcycled furniture. The first was an easy one. This large old cabinet was loaded with character and charm. All that was necessary was a few minor repairs, a good cleaning and raised up with legs.

Upcycled Furniture 4-03-13

My latest projects were perking up some boring furniture with paint.
I started with this old rickety country table that had been used and abused.

Notched Storage Cabinet Repurposed from Headboard

This headboard was given to me by a family friend who was very reluctant to part with it because he had it from his teens to his adult years, and felt it held many great memories. His wife convinced him, though, that it was time to part with it. I was pleased to […]

Country Cabinet Repurposed from Plant Stand

I loved the price of “free” on this plant stand but the piece itself was just a big yawn. It was time to give it a new life. After I took it apart I turned the center section on its side and lined it with 1/8″ plywood veneer and topped it off with […]

Dressing up Cheap Boring Cabinets

Upcycling boring cabinets

We’ve all purchased them…those cheap, boring white melamine cabinets. Great for storage but not very pretty. Here is an example of how they can be dressed up with molding, paint and new hardware.

On this piece I even dressed up the doors with bead board and trimmed around it with half round molding.
