Removed the doors and hardware, set both aside for some future use.
Washed, sanded, and primed.
Painted beige-ish in an eggshell finish. (Same eggshell paint used for the chest that came from Haz Mat.)
Materials On Hand:
Toggle Bolts, roughly $2 at Home Depot
Live and Learn: When I drilled the holes in the wall I spaced them evenly from the edge of the walls. Mistake! The original drilling holes in the cabinet were not drilled evenly from the cabinet sides. Why? No idea. Guess it doesn't matter when you have doors on it. As a result, the cabinet-turned-shelf is not centered on the wall. It works out for us now since we keep our ironing board here and it fits perfectly. Will need to recenter it though before moving.
My motto for really big projects...although this one only took a couple of weeks!
