This piece was heading to the trash. Old wardrobe had seen better days for sure!!

Secured all insides of doors, added magnets to inside of door frames to keep doors

closed & knobs.

Sewed panels for inside & strung them on picture hanging wire. I wanted them to droop so this piece will still look vintage.

Ralph Lauren Farmhouse Red~4 layers, then sanded & sealed with minwax antique wax. 

Love it if I do say so myself :)
