Diy Home Ideas Of Making An Apothecary Table

Few months back I was on a tour and had a chance to visit some exotic places with my partner. During my tour I got a chance to visit one of my friends who works at a furniture workshop. Let me get this straight, it was not an ordinary furniture workshop. For a moment, I thought I was at some royal building because each and every thing was so amazing that my naïve mind thought that only royals can own such amazing piece of furniture’s. There were plenty of things that caught my attention. However, one of the most amazing things that I saw there was an Apothecary Cabinet. I will be honest here; I thought it an amazing desk with plenty of drawers. I had no idea what apothecary cabinet is. But the entire time I could help but checkout that table with the corner eye. Before saying goodbye to my friend, I asked her about the table and that’s when I learned what it is called (also that when I learned how expensive it is, LOL).

The price point of the apothecary table was equal to the expense of my entire tour (I am not even kidding here). Despite being extremely expensive, it was on my list of dream home ideas. I started doing research if I can find it somewhere in my home town. My research ended with good news and a bad news. The good news was that it was easily available at some big stores, the bad news? Well it was way out of range. My love for this apothecary table made me to step out of my comfort zone and I decided to research for the creative home ideas that I can use to make an apothecary table for my house. I went to ikea to help me work on these awesome home ideas. Ikea has been a life saver from most of my diy home ideas. This time ikea was again useful and I found the perfect table that I could turn into apothecary table using cool home ideas. It was within my budget and I could see exactly how I am going to turn it into home decorators table. There were few things that I needed to buy from the market.

Once I had everything, I got to work of turning these creative home ideas to work.
