Sometimes, you just need to use what you have. I was ready for a new project, but honestly, most of my stuff is behind loads of snow, and I really don't feel like doing all that shoveling, when it's going to melt soon anyway. So I have had to be creative and use what is accessible. I wanted to make a hall tree and found this slab door in the basement. Not very exciting, but I think I can make it work.
I trimmed the edges off thin tongue and groove paneling and glued and nailed it onto the door.
Somehow I measured wrong and my spacing wasn't quite right, but that was a lucky mistake because it left the perfect amount of room to add a mirror. Mistake, what mistake, I did that on purpose, ha, this isn't my first build you know, I got this.
I had this mirror in my stash of mirrors, yes I have a stash of mirrors, I have a plan. In the meantime I will give this one up because it's perfect for this project. The gold however, is not perfect, but I can take care of that.
After painting, and sanding, and antiquing, and varnishing, and adding a shelf, and a bench and ... poof! Finished project! Gotta love the magic of a blog, it all comes together so quickly.
