there was a very dark green kitchen dresser
Yes, this is still about the bathroom
While I’m here I’ll tell you about some fiddling on the shelf

and the green dresser?
Guess where the corner cupboard came from
I bought the green dresser because I liked it and it was cheap and I also believed I might be able to use the top half in the kitchen of this 1930s to late 50s house. Actually it reminded me of the built-in cupboards you find in the kitchens of this period of house, although the trim at bottom and top gave it the look of an earlier period.
Using the remains
Yesterday I started the rescue operation of the remaining base section, comprising one of its outer walls, part of the original back-board, a bit of base and a wildly swinging wooden door.
It’s now masquerading as that bathroom cupboard, having had its other half built up in 3 mm cardboard along with a new top in the card and a couple of internal bracing pieces too. Also added a new door handle more in keeping with the blocky styling of the period and painted the confection in a suitable shade of pink. It has really lumpy painting before sanding down. Used bits of that thin acetate (the packaging you get these days that’s more plastic-feeling than cellophane) to keep door open-able while paint dries
And the top half?
Well, my intention is to eventually move on to a fantasy/steampunk/medieval land build, once this current project has also moved on to its final stages. I’m sure I’ll find a home for the cupboard (with drawer?) in some scientific establishment that may or may not make up part of the future fantasy fling.
