Separated from it’s original cabinet, it was in an awkward state, left to linger without much a life ahead of it. But I saw the potential for a bookshelf, having previously repurposed an old hutch in a similar way. So out came my circular saw. I drew a straight line along it’s sides and back, and then cut away the lower leg supports.
I then painted it Antiqued White, used Tea Stained glaze to provide a weathered look, and then distressed the piece. With it’s original adjustable shelves, a “new” bookshelf was born!
