Four things led us to pick this vanity to upcycle for this D.I.Y. TV Table:
Price, Storage, Cool old hardware, and lastly but most importantly - it was topless!
First thing we needed to do was take the hardware off. usually, all you'll need is a flat head screw driver to remove the bolts.
The next thing we needed to do was get rid of the ugly water damaged bottom of the cabinet. It was covered by some thick and super sticky glue from a rubber bumper that must have been there. We had some scrap cedar planks laying around so we used those for FREE!
|Flip the table upside down and mark it with a marker|
|Cut with a circular saw along the marked line|
|Glue the skirting around the bumper making sure to keep everything flush|
|Pin the wood to the table with 5/8 inch nails|
With skirting finished and hardware removed and the cabinet doors removed we were ready to sand it down lightly. For this task we used a random orbital sander with 120 grit sand paper.
