Wow! First of all, what a cool website. A friend of mine referred me to the site and I have to say I am impressed with everything that I have seen so far!! What a creative world we all live in. About 3 months ago I went to the local re-use store and purchased this beat up cabinet for $10. My plan was to make a potting bench to use outside in my yard and I also wanted some additional storage to hold tools and things. Beauty is certainly beyond skin deep and what I saw was just what I had imagined.
With a little elbow grease I got off what paint I could from the cabinet and knocked off one of the shelves that was beyond repair. I used some white paint I already had as a primer and I purchased the primary color at Home Depot for $1 "oops paint" and went to town painting. After two coats it turned out great.
I used some old shelves from a bookcase I no longer used as a counter and an old window I picked up free sitting by someone's garbage. I painted the window black before installing. I used a couple of handles that I found in my toolbox and I was good to go.
This whole project took a day to complete and I have to say I have enjoyed it every time I have gone to pot a plant or put away some garden tools.
