My old cabinets are going to be.................




Yep, it's finally time to show you where my old cabinets are going and what they are becoming!!!
If you've missed the past posts on what they looked like when I started, go herehere, here, and here!
Here they are in all their unfinished glory! LOL

I took those old upper kitchen cabinets and  built tops and made built-ins out of them for my son's room!




Here is a drawing of  my first plan for the built-ins
 (honestly I CAN draw better than this...I did this while standing in the middle of Lowes with nothing to support my paper!) lol



I have changed my plan slightly from the drawing, as I still have more stuff I'll be adding, so stay tuned! ....
for now it's time to do some more painting and sprucing up on them!
Stay tuned to see what I'm going to do to the backs!
Be patient, they're not finished yet, but they're gonna be
SO CUTE!

Blessings & Hugs

Wow Missy! What a great job. You are talented. I am not good with wood. Just a slight fear of power tools. Can't wait to see it finished. Have a great week.

You are amazing!! I'm inspired to get cleaning in the garage and see what tools I can learn to use. My husband always called me "Hector" the collector (Shel Silverstein)but I am thinking he had the same affliction. He would always do things for me, but now I must take care of it myself. Thanks for sharing! ♥♫
