ell, in true Signed Samantha fashion I am slowly making my way through the start of the One Room Challenge. I love that I do this to myself every year. It’s actually ridiculous. I learn nothing. Anyways - two weeks ago, last week, and this week. I did a whopping nothing. AND I'm going away this weekend so ... probably more nothingness to come. If you’re interested in a nothing updates, please stick around. JOKING - sort of, I did do nothing but I still have an update: the surprise project I have in mind for my family room. Are you ready to be SO darn excited?! I am ready for you, so without further ado, I present to you the most amazing cabinet you’ve ever seen come from Facebook Market Place and it is mine!!!!!
The Original Cabinet Inspiration
The Plan for this FBM Cabinet
So, with the Arhaus Hattie Cabinet in mind, here is my plan. A nice sanding – I don’t need to go so intense on the outside as I do plan to use a gel stain but also recognize that there is mould and it wasn’t sanded the best when it was made so I need to smooth out the surface. Then, you got it from the hint before – I will gel stain the outside black – similar to in the inspo piece and will do the inside a more rustic mid-tone wood colour.
Then hardware, this cabinet needs hardware! I’ve stalked – like excessively stalked Arhaus and I will be snagging their Hattie Cabinet Pulls (YAY!). Finally, my dream would be to remove the bottom and put this cabinet on legs – but I don’t this it’s entirely feasible. Since I haven’t done anything I don’t know if I can or cannot – I suspect it’s wood glue so I suspect I cannot.
