My handy husband made this over his spring break!

We started with my lovely 30's enamel-top kitchen table

and some very ugly and abused cabinets from the habitat for humanity store.

Throw in some molding and fancy drawer pulls (and several hours of work), and ta-da!




All three middle drawers were broken beyond saving, so we found some nifty baskets to replace them.  Since they were exactly the right size (that never happens!) we were even able to use the drawer sliders.

Thanks!  I married for carpentry skills instead of money  Wink!  I forgot to add that the whole thing cost less than $200, including the price of the table.  I'm sure I'll spend more than that on bar stools!
