I had two end tables that I wasn't using, so I deconstructed them to make a storage cabinet. The second table had a leaf on either side. This was the table that I would deconstruct. I begin by using medium-grit sandpaper to remove the finish from the entire table after sanding I removed both leaves the top while I removed everything and was left with a lot of pieces to work with the top of the second table was going to be the Top of the new cabinet, but first I had to build a frame. I started by building a u-shape out of one by threes, which I glued and screwed together. I then attached those to the back in the front of the top of this first table.
I used pieces of the second table to attach you frames together and then attach those to the top of the table. I even use screws from the second table now for the sides of the cabinet. I measured and cut quarter-inch plywood to size. Then nailed it to the frame that I had made for extra storage. I added a piece of pegboard to the back. I made shelves using the wings from underneath leaves of the second table and the size of the drawer once the cabinet was enclosed. I added trim around the entire piece I used half inch square trim, which I glued and nailed in place. I wanted to add, shelving inside the cabinet, so I cut down two of the legs from the second table and spray painted them. Copper. I also primed the entire cabinet with spray paint that really wasn't such a good idea. It was really cold in the garage where I was working. So I brought the cabinet inside to paint him once it was dry.
I added the legs for the shelving and the actual shelves were made with the quarter inch plywood pieces that I had left from the sides. I also screwed a small shelf along the back of the cabinet for craft paint. This shelf was made with a piece of the drawer from the second table to add a little pizzazz. I glued a piece of wrapping paper inside the print had copper flowers which matched the legs of the shelf using command hooks in a dowel. I added storage for a thread. I also stapled a piece of elastic at the bottom and use that as storage for my paper rolls, to add hanging baskets. I cut dowels to size, fit them into the pegboard and then threaded them through dollar-store baskets. The top shelves were made from the wings and the drawers of the second table and the doors were made from the leaves. I hope this inspires you to deconstruct something you already own to make something totally brand new
