This was found on St. Patty’s day with a big FREE sign on it. A beauty, eh?
Just look at that wood. And the hardware. And all the details — between the cut wood and door panels, you don’t know which way to look. And this baby even has a matching hutch. Oh yeah.
We picked it up after dark and upon inspection the next day, it was destined to go. Just not my style. I tried to give it away to several friends to avoid having to move it myself (LOL….I’m nice like that…..) but, alas, no takers. It sat in my garage for over a month. During that time, the seeds of how to transform this solid but ugly piece began to grow.
After crowbarring off the door panels and sanding them smooth, removing all the hardware (and filling all the holes with wood filler), sanding, priming, and applying 4 coats of black paint, new hardware, and having glass shelves custom cut for the hutch, it is done. Presenting our new Science Cabinet.
A perfect spot to store John’s eclectic collections and to feed the children’s minds.
