Cabinet Progress!

Remember these?~
How could you forget em' huh! lol

 I'm steadily making progress on them.
First I fixed the one with no top and no back by...well, putting on a top and a back! LOL

Then I washed them down with this stuff

It's called TSP and it stand for Tri-sodium Phosphate, which is a fancy word for industrial strength cleaner that will eat your hands wear these!

I also bought some of this-
Particle board

and these trims....curious yet? :)

I first decided I wanted the cabinet off the ground so I built a toe kick like this...
(it's 1 x 4's)

Then  I measured the bottom of the cabinet and made a piece that was the exact size like this...

Those two pieces got screwed together.....with the backs flush.  I made the top piece overhang the toe kick by about 1 1/2".

So right now, the cabinet looks like this.....

Oh, did you notice I turned them upside down....I wanted the knobs to be at the top, not the bottom. :)

I know, I know, it's nothing to stand up and applaud about yet, but I wanted to show you that I am making progress and not just sitting on my tushy.  Actually I haven't been sitting on my tushy at middle son is graduating high school Saturday and we're having him an open house, so I've been cleaning and shopping and cleaning some more! I think any progress I've made on the cabinets so far is a miracle! LOL

Hope you guys have a great day~!
