THE BEFORE - window dresser

I recently replaced 3 large ugly drawers in the middle of an old dresser
with a vintage window turned door and cupboard space behind.

 Here are the much anticipated BEFORE shots.

The first time my daughter saw this dresser she remarked on the ugliness of the middle drawers.
Not to worry they will get used in the future but out they go for now.

This is my sliding compound mitre saw, a tool I use just about every day,
and definitely an asset for this project.

 The interior of the cupboard was lined with the wood from the 4 drawers.

A = drawer back
B = drawer bottom
C = drawer sides

There is a great deal of framing going on behind that beautiful wood interior.
Again most of it was the original framing for the drawers just re purposed.

It's like it was meant to be this way always! 

You can find all the beauty shots here,
and if you would like to see more BEFORE and AFTER shots
