Made at 173: The (Old) Medicine Cabinet

For a Funky Little Spot

Taking a break from the kitchen posts until some of the punch list items are done, so I thought this might be the perfect opportunity to document an old, minor project.  Not long after moving into 173, it became apparent there was a need for a medicine cabinet.  Fortunately, there's this funky little spot between the entryway and the kitchen, where the basement door is, that is too small to do anything with:

That little wall was the perfect spot for a medicine cabinet, and after some project or other (I don't recall at this point) I had some scrap wood available.  If you've been reading this blog at all, you know I usually try to find a project to use up the scraps, and that's exactly what I did for this cabinet.

Yup! Pretty rustic, but almost 20 years ago I think that's what we were going for (that's my excuse anyway - just let me have it!).  To show the scraps used, and just how rustic this thing was:

The panel in the door is leftover from the original front porch makeover - which took place pre-173 blog!

I time went on, and 173ites grew older, the number of medications, balms and salves grew, and as you can see - anarchy reigned!

Here's a shot so you can see the old medicine cabinet's natural habitat.

If you noticed, I've referred to this medicine cabinet as the old medicine cabinet.  There's a reason for that - next post!  Until then....
