Naturally part of any remodel is demolition. Most of what comes out during demo isn’t worth keeping. Of course there are exceptions…
This piece may have seemed outdated with its scalloped trim but with its inset doors and solid wood throughout, it was a keeper.
All I did was… big breath… cut it apart to make a breakfront, cut a footer detail, trim paneling around around each of the sides, a 1 inch crown around new countertop, a 2-step 4 inch crown on top, replace hinges with restoration hardware hinges AND then with painted it white.
Unfortunately, we did not get professional pictures so you’ll just have to use your imagination. It’s pretty awesome in person.
