Went for a walk the other night and found this primitive gem sitting by the dumpster. My daughter is remodeling her home and is excited to get it to hang in her new bathroom!!

Nice find! Should clean up well, is she into shabby chic or will she repaint it? Show as a pic when she has it up! I think it will be a very cozy addition, plant of top & couple of nick-knacks in between the dowels at bottom! Jan

Nice!...Looks like somebody gave up on the poor thing. I can envision a fine piece of furniture with lots of function.

RE: Dumpster Find!! If it were mine

If it were mine, I would remove the spindles and make that a lower shelf, then slip a drawer in the space above it.

How cute! I love the arched doors. Be sure and keep us posted on it's transformation. I'm with Chevy on removing the spindles. A couple of baskets to hold toiletries would be cute too. Leslie

RE: Dumpster Find!!

I have a cabinet almost exactly the same! I made a drawer for the middle space and left the dowels on the bottom shelf.

Painted the whole thing a mellow creme colour and added a back. The back stablizes the whole cabinet, keeps it from racking and also keeps stuff from falling behind the cabinet.

Originally I had it hanging on the wall on the master bath but then I got the idea to add 1&1/2 inch legs and now it sits on the counter.

And please post a pic when it is done??
