Before and After - First Aid Cabinet

Oh wow, it has been awhile since I posted anything new here.  Thanks for hanging in there.  Life has been hectic and being a Gramma has been taking a lot of my free time.  Who knew it would be this much fun.  I am loving every minute of it. 

I did manage to get a few things accomplished the past few months...

I wanted to make a first aid cabinet for awhile now.  As soon as I saw this handmade wooden cabinet at the thift store I knew exactly what is was going to be. 

 as found... no back, shelves or glass
 
painted... stained... distressed... and waxed...
 
added a porcelain knob, glass from a thrifted photo frame and a shutter hook
 
added two shelves... a piece of luan on the back, covered with scrapbook paper
and
 loaded her up with some vintage first aid pieces
 
I added etching vinyl to the glass to give it that opaque look... good job I did because the last turn on the screw cracked the glass... it just addds a little more character to the piece, don't ya think
 
it now has a new home on the shutter hanging in my washroom
 
Thanks for popping by...
 
 
 
ALERT ~  there's a little lady bug running about the malls these days... keep your eyes peeled

What a great idea. Everyone needs a first aid kit that can be found fast in an emergency.

I'll be watching for that ladybug too. lol
