Kitchen pantry from scratch ‘n dent cupboard

Edward turns a pile of as-is wood into kitchen storage.

“I recognized a pile of wood in the scratch and dent area as a cupboard, which I think was from the Akurum series. Our tiny kitchen was desperate for some extra space, so I bought the wood, for I think $5, a set of Vika legs, which were easily shortened with a hack saw, and turned the cabinet on its side, re-cutting the original long horizontal cross shelf into shorter lengths for the new orientation. A little paper inside the glass doors hid the brick-a-brack and it was done.”
