This is a cup rack that mom had in her little tin storage shed for who knows how long. Most of the finish had worn off and peeled away but the integrity of the piece was in excellent shape. All I had to do was sand off the bad finish and with it some of the original stain then I used a red/purplish stain from where I don’‘t know it was in my stain cabinet and looked cool so walla..

I liked the way it kind of gave dark and light spots and mom was happy too.

I just got it hung for her yesterday so she should have some mugs in it today. You will notice in the one pic Its sitting on a really cool old wash cabinet. Me and the wife found this at a antique store a while back and we plan on turning it into our bathroom sink when we do the remodel. From what I can tell its late 1800’s with some mending done recently, the hardware is newer garbage that we will replace and the bottom of the right cubby is replaced with plywood. Other then that it has all the original stuff soooooooo kewl… we love it

I’ll add some pics of it later tonight

Thanks for looking and if you would like to check out my etsy shop sometime here it is https://www.etsy.com/shop/mcoyfrog

That is a nice restore and something that you should copy since you have the original as a sample .
A simple plan with measurements would be appreciated by many I am sure .
