This was a shop cabinet that I keep tools on in my old shop. My daughter ask if I could make here a cabinet for her living room out of it I really wanted to just build something new but for some darn reason she liked this set of shelves. Now it had been banged up, had oil on it, and who know what else in the year or so setting in the shop as you can see
I did little work on it. and l think it came it out pretty nice. I added some nice trim, made a top for it and did some art work of my grandkids on it, then scraped and sanded the whole thing. and used a glaze to help hide some of the scars then gave it a few coats of poly. The hardest part was working on the tiny porch of our apartment. and trying to do the finish work out there with the wind and the rain, well lets just stay mother nature must not want me to of put poly on this thing because every time I did she try to blow every thing she could right over stick to it. I guess she wanted me to use shellac.
