Repurposing an old cabinet……

 

I have had this old Hoosier helper cabinet for years. I can’t even remember where we got it originally since we have had it forever. For the last ten years though it has been in our mudroom used for storage. I needed a cabinet for the hall bathroom so I convinced my poor husband to help me haul it upstairs. This is definitely not a piece made of pressed wood, it weighs a ton!

It was a tan color so I gave it a quick coat of white paint that I had on hand and then distressed it a little and called it good. I still need to get the handy man to made a leg for the back. Currently it is propped up with a paint can but shhhhh don’t tell anyone okay?

The clam basket on top of the cabinet hold bundles of lavender……the smell is just divine! This room is definitely a work in progress, I guess you just can’t rush things sometimes?!?!? I would like to get the room done soon though…..as in this year!

Have a great week my friends!
