It looked super cute in the showroom and I didn't notice it was missing something. Do you see what it's missing?
Yup, it was missing a little piece on the left door.
I stained it with some Provincial stain we already had.
The little piece outside wasn't the only thing wrong with the cabinet. A piece of wood had been set in the bottom of the cabinet, but the piece of wood didn't go all the way to the sides of the cabinets so there were gaps on each side.
Here's the quick version of how Mr. DIY fixed the interior:
(He took off the back, bottom, replaced the bottom with a new piece of wood, then lined the sides so they would be smooth and replaced the back.)
I then painted the interior with Valspar Bird Song in semi-gloss and gave the shelves a coat of water based poly)
Here's how the cute Vintage Cabinet looks in the downstairs bedroom at the Mountain Cottage.
Just thought I'd give you a peek of how the pantry looked when it was a closet...
Wasn't it lovely?
Stay tuned for the big reveal soon.
