GEORGE IS A GONER - cabinet transformation

I remember that morning we were running late because someone slept in.
It was one of those Saturdays I enjoy so much, spending time with George, getting out
to all the yard sales and finding other ppls crap I can make into something wonderful.

Heading down the road I spotted this cabinet and my heart started to pound in my chest.
Unsure if it was the fast food I had for breakfast or the treasure I just saw on the road side
but I knew it was a candidate for my workshop.

I had an appointment to keep before I could consider wrangling this thing into our vehicle,
so George dropped me off and he went back. George is a mighty force to be
reckoned with but when it comes to dirt, ..... he's a goner.

Poor George picked up this filthy, spider ridden cabinet for me. 
He was a one man crew picking up and loading this piece into my truck.
Once he returned you had to see his face, his dirty white shirt, and hear the story only he could tell,
With a piece that was this grimy
I had to clean, sand, paint and wax the interior shelves,
lined all the drawers as well as the inside back panels.
There was some damage to the bottom edges so I cut that right off and added new legs.
I added some iron scroll work to trick your eye
away from the building block shape, and installed a mirror into the door.


There are some new treasures to be found at
