A friend wanted to know if I wanted this cabnet, I of course took it. It was her grandfathers and all she asked was that I put it to good use! It took a little while to get around to it as it was a MESS. I don't have any before pics. But it had a dark red finish, part of it had been primered, then part of it was sanded. The door wasn't attached and there was no hardware. You could tell they had intended to do SOMETHING with it but never could do it.

You can see a little bit of what the original wood looked like on the inside of the door there.

It now houses my daughters craft supplies. I have a feeling all the crafting is going to continue on with her!!!

Hope you like!  Grin

I love the idea of reviving old wooden furniture. I have an old wooden chair my grandma didn't want (there were 2 of them) so my mom took them, sanded them by hand, stained and varnished them and my sister and I each have one. We got them 20+ years ago and it was my computer chair for the longest time.


My zombie gnome was a 2013 Featured Project, my KISS gnomes were an August 2014 Featured Project, and my TARDIS was a February 2016 Featured Project. Thanks for voting for them.

Wow! Did you do the mosaic on the top, too? It looks fabulous!

Oh! If I could make sense of it all. I wish that I could sing, I'd stay in a melody. I would float along in my everlasting song. What would I do to believe...

Wow.  A very nice cabinet turned into a beautiful cabinet.  Love the top.  Great job in preserving a wonderful piece of furniture.
