My brother in law has 2 growing girls that are very adorable.   He got in touch with my wife at the same time she was thinking about making some type of play cabinet for his 2 girls.  So she went to several Goodwills and was able to find this old china cabinet.

We stripped it down and I had to put some braces to support the frame and patch up the holes that were left after the shelves were taken out.  I really thought this was going to fall apart at this point, but it held up once we put some support brackets in certain spots, which you'll see.

Once the support brackets were in place it was sturdy.  We had to move inside because this south Texas heat was over 100 degrees every day and the humidity was high also.   We next bought the material to cover the back wall and sides with.  Along with the paint.

Alma also picked up this clock at some thrift store real cheap, I mean real cheap.   I had to carve out some of the back to fit a round mirror inside and I really had doubts about this one but it fit and worked perfectly.  I don't know how my wife sees this stuff.

After sanding and repainting, Alma added some bling to it and it actually looks real nice.
