The Ugly Duckling

Saturdays are usually filled with estate shopping.

Unfortunately, there wasn't a lot going on as far as treasure hunting goes.

So my #1 and I headed to the Rebuilders store to purchase old boards to finish an old cabinet that I purchased about a month ago.

I have to tell you my #1 was not pleased with this cabinet when he first saw it.

I have to admit it wasn't the prettiest thing.

It looked as if it was carelessly torn out of the inside of a garage.

But I just knew he could do something great with it.

Every time he saw the cabinet he would express to me that it would make better firewood then anything.

Well, today was the day he tore into it.

I have to say it still isn't pretty but it looks a lot better!

I love the old primitive shelving.

I'm sure it will make a wonderful garden storage cabinet for an avid gardener.

And more importantly it's done!

So, if you're looking for a great old primitive cabinet to put gardening supplies in, be sure to come to Monticello's Garden Show, which opens April 9th.

Thank you for stopping by!
