A couple years later I moved my dad into an apartment closer to my mom. My friends came and helped me clean out my parents home. Move my dad and all. Thank goodness for friends because that was a huge job. My dad was a woodworker too and had so much lumber at his house I could of built him a house, I swear.
Anyway after bringing TRUCK loads of lumber home to my house and my friends taking some too we finally got that all cleaned up. It is an old house. On the back porch there were some old pantry cupboards and also in the basement there were more. I think they must have moved them out of the kitchen once upon a time. Really I am not sure.
So I decided I wanted the doors and hardware off of them and I went to work with a screwdriver removing all the hardware throughout the house. Replacing where it was needed. I wanted to show you what I did this morning and what I made with those pantry doors.
|So I built a box for the coffee table. Just some old wood (with bark still on the one edge. I used old snowshoe strapping to make the handles on the side.|
|A few dividers added for convenience|
|The box on my coffee table right now. Which is always a mess and doesn't have a lid to cover the mess. Why is it that when you add one person to a household (from college) that the mess triples.|
|Now all sorted and put in new box|
|Just the other side of the coffee table. I left the hinges on here too. I have them screwed down but the top doesn't really open. I just didn't want to remove the original hardware. I love how it came out.|
Have a great day everyone
