Description: 1) Took the Varde cabinet (great organizer, looks tacky from the back). 2) Added a shoe organizer at the end (so when we come into the kitchen from the outside we leave boots at the door, and grab slippers from the shoe organizer) 3) Covered the whole thing in 1/4 ply and 1 x 3 MDF trim 4) Painted 5) Installed new Ikea wood counter on top (removing worn out thinner one that came with the unit)
