I purchased plywood, measured and cut it down to fit the front of this bookshelf. Then cut that in half. I did not take pictures of this process, I will do my best to keep track of all steps for next months challenge. I needed these steps because I decided to fancy this bookshelf up and turn it into usable storage, with doors.
The doors is where the fall inspiration will come into play. I wanted to add a tree outline onto the doors. Giving it some fun and different details to the piece. Also, this storage is now much more usable as the doors can be closed. Anyone else sometimes not perfectly organized with their cabinets, and need to hide said mess? Just me? Moving on…
I cut down to the exact size of the plywood two pieces of masonite. This will be what the tree will be made out of. It will give some depth to the tree. I could have simply painted it on but really wanted to add a fun detail to the actual doors. Once they were cut, I measured the frame around the whole doors. Marking appropriately.
Next, comes the door handles. Mark where you want them to go and then using a drill and drilling a hole into the door.
Who is ready to see the other great furniture refresh projects? Me! I know what I will be doing for the rest of the day. No one needs clean clothes, dishes done, picked up from preschool. Mama needs to peruse the inter webs and all of these wonderful ideas and up cycles. I think my kids will understand.
