We’ve lamented about our love of family furniture transformations in the past, but this project just might take the cake on the most-epic-makeover-ever scale.
When I (JZ) inherited my late grandmother’s 1970’s MCM shelf, I started googling for inspiration on what we do with it.
Originally, it had some glass doors up top and an open bottom, but realizing we needed storage, I was leaning toward designs with solid doors.
A trend quickly emerged on our Pinterest board for this project. Without realizing it, several of the cabinets that I had pinned were from Anthropologie…and they were nearly $1,000 a piece at the time of writing this. The one that ultimately inspired this furniture flip was a beautiful hand carved piece…no wonder it cost so much.
Woodworking may be expensive, but I knew we could do it for less…if we could do it.
Ultimately, this project took us about a month to complete, partly because we had a weeklong break in the middle for some work commitments, but also because we ran into a challenge pretty much at every step.
One of these days, we’ll do a project where we’re not just learning the entire time, but actually using skills we’ve built before. One day… 😉
