5 years ago we moved into a new/old home and there were several "gifts" left in the yard and basement. You know, old wood, broken lawn furniture and such. One item was a rusty metal medicine cabinet with a wonderful old foggy mirror. I took pics of the process...but where oh where did those in progress pics go?

I finally unearthed it, cleaned all the cobwebs and dead bugs and mildew away, sanded the rust, primed and painted to go in our new craft room. In the process of handling the old thin mirror very carefully, I bumped it and broke it right in two! I'm hoping to glue it back together in such a way that it will still fit in the cabinet, but in the meantime, I'm using the front as a magnet board. Buttons with glued on earth magnets are awesome.

Look how nicely my craft paints fit on the shelves. I can find the color I want fairly easily now. And maybe, just maybe I can keep it organized.

I wouldn't put a mirror back in the cabinet, it looks great as is, and useful to boot.
