Armoire Accomplished

I can't believe it was barely three weeks ago that I dragged an old door out of my basement--it had been sitting in the same place for probably fifty years or more--and now it has become the basis for a fabulous armoire for my daughters. The furniture maker delivered it today and it's exactly what I wanted.

Door before just after I pulled it out of the basement, liberally coated with grime.

It was necessary to cut the top panel off, so the finished armoire wouldn't be taller than the ceiling.

  1. Wow! What an amazing difference.

  2. It's really cool! And I think it is bigger and has a nicer door than my actual closet.

  3. It looks fan-freaking-tastic.

  4. Very nice. I'm impressed.
