When we first moved into this house, this cabinet/shelf was in the laundry room and we took it down to fit our full-sized stackable w/d set and a shelf/rod combo. It lived in the shop for nearly 4.5 years.



Then earlier this month, I pulled it out to refinish into something for our bathroom. I sanded down to bare wood on the exterior, sanded and repainted in the interior, replaced the backing altogether, painted the metal on the drawer knobs, added the dowel, and drilled holes for electrical cords. Whew! A rustic, simple finish worked for our space, so that's how I did it! YEY for easier and faster!







Instead of just painting the new backing, I covered it with fabric from the same collection as some I used to make the border on a linen shower curtain. That sweet hoopla of my baby Delia was a gift from a dear one.



I went on and on about the process (along with other cabinet refinishing stuff) on my blog which will come out tomorrow morning (May 1, 2017): http://suddenlytaxidermy.blogspot.com/2017/05/one-step-at-time-bathroom-redo-edition.html

It looks great, and very nicely styled. That was a really good idea to use fabric for the back wall, especially since it ties in the shower curtain. Bravo!

Thanks everyone! One thing that is special about this is it is a place for me to display some things that I love, but that don't really fit in with my usual taste and therefore don't fit in anywhere else in my house.
