My plan was to use the bottom of our green hutch to form the bottom of our new linen closet in the master suite hallway.
I measured carefully and found the opening is 37 inches wide and the cabinet is also 37 inches.
That just shows what a good measurer I am. The cabinet is actually 37 inches wide but the opening is only 36-1/2 inches.
Now I have to make a few more alterations than I was planning. And of course they’re more difficult than I would suspect.
First I need to remove the trim around the bottom — I can get a spackling knife behind it but it won’t loosen up. It must be glued on. I’ll let Charlie tackle that chore.
The top is also too wide and needs to be cut down to 36 inches max.
And I want to paint it white to match the upper cabinet. Or maybe I should paint it grey like the cabinets in the kitchen which are dark on the bottom and white on top.
So many decisions and tasks for such a small item.
