CABINET TRANSFORMATION - vintage shabby chic

One morning years ago we were running late after sleeping in. It was one of those Saturdays we enjoyed spending together. All morning we would drive around doing the yard sale thing.

Heading down the road I spotted this cabinet and my heart 
started to pound in my chest. Who doesn't get a rush of 
adrenaline when you see a curb side treasure.

It was transformed with some wood work, some queen anne
 legs, cast iron trim pieces, a mirror for the door, some paint,
 and carefully selected hardware swap.


There was damage to the bottom edges so I cut that off and added the new legs.

I can't do the heavy lifting so my hero George picked up this filthy, spider infested cabinet for me. 
He was a one man crew picking up and loading this piece into the truck.
His face was dirty, his white shirt was dirty, but it was a story only he could tell,

I had to clean, sand, paint and wax the interior shelves,
lined all the drawers as well as the inside back panels.
