Wordless{ish} Wednesday: A new project


{The last time I visited my family in western Pennsylvania, I wound up coming home with this awesome 1950s metal cabinet.  It had been hidden away in the basement of my great aunt's house for years and years, but I knew I'd be able to come up with a use for it in our new place.}


{They don't make 'em like this any more!}


{I spent the better part of an afternoon removing the dirty, old contact paper that covered the drawer fronts, only to discover that it had been placed there to cover some heavy-duty wear and tear to the original paint.  I think I may have figured out a neat and easy way of fixing this cosmetic issue...but that's for another post!}

What a flashback! I don't think mom had this one but something similar. I love antique things.
Hope you do a post when completed, I would love to see.

Gosh, that contact paper looks like something I remember from my grandparents. What an eye for making something cool out of something old.
