Rachel knew she had found a treasure in this old icebox. She also found a bunch of beer cans and about a gazillion years worth of grime, water damage, and rot. Still, even though she had no idea what to do with this thing, or how to salvage it, she knew it was a once-in-a-lifetime find that couldn’t be passed up. Not to mention it was free! So she took this little piece of history home and waited for over a year for inspiration to strike.
Inspiration struck like this: “Knock knock.” Who’s there? “Inspiration.” Inspiration who? “Bathroom vanity!” So, it was decided, but it wasn’t smooth sailing from there. The whole process involved nearly dismantling the entire thing, reusing the decent scraps of wood where she could, hodge-podging the drawers, balusters and marble top from random sources and turning it all into the beautiful vanity you see before you today. Whew! I’m tired just typing that! See the whole story on her blog The Olde Farmhouse On Windmill Hill.
