yada yada

So...we just got back from visiting my husband's mother in Michigan and I have had to do a ton of homework to catch back up and I just haven't had time to photograph any of my completed stuff (that and I haven't got anything completed this week). So I thought I would delight you with an almost finished project.

My granddad had a huge cabinet in storage that was just begging for me to rescue it. We were in desperate need for extra coat and linen storage and thought that it would be perfect.

Here is the before:


Notice how absolutely lovely it was...yucky. We had to saw part of the bottom and top off, sand it for hours, turn the doors around, put new sides on it, clean it, clean it some more, and finally prime and paint it.

This is what it currently looks like (sorry for the bad photos - I had to use a flash and they are cropped weird because of something else I am working on - for another project):


It's not quite done yet - notice the leg thingies on the bottom and the left door needs adjusting so that it will stay closed, and for some reason there is only 2 hinges on one side.

And this is what it looks like on the inside:


The reason for the close crop is because the insides of the doors are going to be revealed later on for another project feature!

It holds oodles and oodles of pillows (some really ugly ones that are about to be covered), 90% of my purses, coats, sheets, blankets, and more. Not quite gorgeous yet but definitely on its way!
