Ideas for repairing this water damage wood?
The plan is to strip, sand and paint and add new hardware to this old cabinet, it's nothing special, but I'd like to fix it up.
Any ideas/suggestions on how to fix this water damamged side area? I thought maybe some wide molding on both ends? I realize that will change the look of it and it would lose the curved sides, but maybe that's not overall a big deal? And would it be worth the effort to replace this backing where there is a small hole or just try to patch it somehow and paint over it?
I guess while we are at it, any thoughts on the drawer that has a chunk missing? can this be fixed somehow too? (by a novice, with lots of time on her hands and some basic power tools??
thanks for looking
