About 5 or 6 months ago we picked up a beat down Sellers cabinet on the cheap. Well it was cheap for a reason. One drawer front was busted in half, a door was hanging by one hinge, it was about 13 different colors and was soaked in grease. This thing was well used and some things I just couldn't salvage. I replaced a few things because they were broke, and others because they were just soaked in grease.
Here's what it looked like before:
And after.... The white top on this is porcelain so it's not something I could just paint very easy. Yes, that green strip is ugly. I'll figure something out...
Another before picture:
The rest are pictures I took during the rehab. I estimate that I have about 40 hours in this project. Most of that time was spent stripping paint.
Here is the drawer front I had to replace.
And this drawer needed everything but the front. I salvaged the front and built a new drawer.
Part way stripped.
This took the most time. The roll up cabinet has about 15 separate wood pieces. I couldn't take this apart so I had to scrape in between all of them. This alone was probably 3 hours of work.
Small fraction of the stripped paint.
Start of paint.
Start of assembly.
The new hinges I bought had a different offset. See the gaps on the left side. Had to fill holes, re-sand, re-paint....
My spray booth took a beating with this project.
