|The finished cabinet.|
|This is how the cabinet looked when we bought our house.|
This cabinet has been a bit of a thorn in my side since we got our house. The first day we had the keys in hand, I took the contact paper out of all the drawers in this cabinet. The smell just about knocked me over. It smelled like...no I can't even tell you what it smelled like, it was that horrible.
The drawers stunk. Bad. What made it worse is the wood the drawer boxes were made of was unfinished, and the smell was in the wood. The smell was so bad, I refused to keep them in the house. I had to find a way to get rid of the smell and that wasn't easy. I used odor remover, let them bake in the sun, used straight vinegar on them... I did anything I could think of to get rid of the smell. It took two months before the smell was gone and I was willing to bring them back in the house.
Well, about a month ago, the towels started to smell. They just didn't smell fresh when I took them out of the drawers. That just wasn't...ah...no. No. I couldn't deal with that. So I removed the drawers and painted every surface with a mold killing primer that's supposed to kill any odor causing bacteria. I'm hoping it does the trick, because otherwise new drawer boxes will have to be made.

One of the things that always bothered me when I was in the loo, was the way the trim pieces were joined around the cabinet. I always looked at that joint and it just bugged me.
