You see, I had these really cool long narrow windows. I could build a cabinet for them, but I never got around to it. This cabinet was just what I needed to finally give these windows new life.
It did come with 3 shelves, they just aren't in it right now as I prepare to get started.
These are the windows I was telling you about. Very dirty here, but they are going to make fantastic cabinet doors.
Wouldn't you agree?
After laying the cabinet on its back, I laid the windows on it. This was the easiest way for me to work on this by myself. You can see that there is a gap in the middle and they are a little too long.
I cut off some of the window frame just along the bottom edge. I also added a cut piece to the center to fill in the gap. Now I marked them for hinges, added them and stood it up.
I like the chippy look of the old windows so I left them in their original state. I added some grey paint for distressing on the cabinet itself. After adding some knobs to the doors, It is all finished.
