I recently had a special request to give some instructions on retrofitting a wardrobe or armoire. Now normally, and unfortunately I don’t have a lot of time to figure out how to do it and write a whole post about something like this if we can’t use it for our home- we are just SO busy! But it just so happens that we have done this ourselves and so I thought I would give it a try.
In our last house we had very little space. We also had no extra money, and a lot of old furniture. But one thing we always have plenty of? Imagination, as Anne of Green Gables would say, that and a whole lotta tools. So, when working out a place to house our tv, we decided to revamp an old cedar wardrobe we had been given.
Now this was before I really started blogging so I didn’t take pictures! Gasp! And unfortunately, I don’t have an original picture but I searched for some images and found one or two that will give you an idea of what we did. This one is most similar, (it is from Bower Power).
The top was not ornate like this, on the bottom there was a fixed drawer, and actually the front skirt was broken like this one too.
This was the basic cabinet, with two 2/3 length doors, a fixed drawer and an attached skirt on the bottom.
Let’s show that before one more time:
