NORTHUMBERLAND BATH CABINET - repurposed glass door

One evening I spotted a salvaged
glass door leaning against a hedge.
I was inspired to start creating
something around this lonely
pane of glass. 

The door was long and narrow and when I looked at it I envisioned glass bottles stashed behind it. Cotton balls, Q-tips, and bars of soap in jars, and soft folded towels.

I start with a base cabinet that was strong and heavy. Heavy enough to take the weight of the glass door opening.

I had a very solid little cabinet with a single drawer that I added legs to. Both the cabinet and the legs were made of
 heavy hardwoods perfect to anchor the whole unit. I built an
 upper cabinet with lighter pine wood to keep it lighter than
 the bottom. I attached the glass door to the upper cabinet.
It is built in two pieces and can be moved in two pieces,
but it is attached at the back with metal straps when in use.

I then painted it in a lightly distressed Pure White and used 
AS clear wax for the finish. There is a lot of open storage but
 also a drawer to tuck away smaller items. She's a beauty.


if we have any shabby chic white hardware for your next project.
