How I fixed the BIG THRIFTED cabinet – Day 2

We got home from a fantastic beach vacation yesterday. I definitely could have stayed a couple more days.

The garage was shouting my name this morning. I was ready to get back at it on the big thrifted cabinet.

If you missed day 1, you can find it here


I left it demo’d and I had filled in most of the holes/scratches with wood fill. This is only one side and every surface needed some help filling in holes, scratches, etc.

Each door has holes where the hardware was. I made a video showing how I filled in the holes. I am NOT an actress and I’m not even a good teacher but I will promise to do my best to show what I know and the products I use on a regular basis.

Almost every door also had broken pieces. I’ve created a video showing the repair process. Or at least what someone can do with one hand while holding the phone in the other. (Can you say veiny, old lady hands?)

Since I couldn’t nail one handed here is the finished, nailed on broken piece

Day 2 is complete and I won’t have much time to work tomorrow. I’ve got a day full of volunteering and a lunch date.

Day 3 will be all about adding a shelf here and there for better storage options and maybe even some primer.

Go get you a nailer.

So fun!!
