View of the inside of the medicine cabinet.

This window was in bad shape I cleaned it up, took out the glass and replaced it with mirrors. I made a box, put in  the shelves, framed out the front and put on hinges. I started out painting it white but I didn't like the look I thought it looked too new. So I sanded it and rubbed stain over it. Also decided it needed the oak trim.

Pattern or design used: My own design
