In yesterday's post I showed you the bottom part of an old oak file cabinet that I found at the thrift store.
I pictured it with some vintage suitcases on top for a nightstand for my guest bedroom.
When I originally purchased the cabinet I was not intending on using it for a nightstand.
At that time I was most interested in the drawer.
Looking at how the cabinet drawer was made I thought it would make a cool shelf.
The face of the cabinet drawer is now the bottom of the shelf.
Lots of room for display.
And the wood slider piece in the drawer that held the files in place......I anchored it with a couple of screws so that it could be used as a mini shelf.
Now I have to decide. Do I use the drawer as intended in the cabinet for my nightstand?
Or do I keep it hanging on the wall as a shelf?
Well....I love the drawer as a shelf so it's going to stay on the wall for awhile. It can easily go back into the cabinet if I tire of it hanging on the wall.
OK, now I have a big opening to fill in the cabinet.
I guess there will be a post called "Oak File Cabinet - Part III.
I'm linking this with Debra @ Common Grounds for Vintage Inspiration Friday.
Have a great weekend.
