Well here we are at Monday again. Hope you had a good weekend.

I finally have the cabinet in the house. I'm not finished but I hope to at least get started on painting the shelves today. It was a long weekend and I'm not getting anywhere fast today so that remains to be seen.

Would you like to see what I have so far?

Here is a pic of what the top looked like when we brought it home. (this is the side with the mirror - the other side was much the same)

Here is a bigger picture. I thought I had a better one, but I can't find it.

You can see two different kinds of hardware - neither of which is original. There was original hardware on the two bottom drawers but one of those was broken so I ended up replacing it all.

Some white paint

Some new hardware

Some gray paint (that looks blue)- and here is what I have so far. There are shelves to go behind the door. I have it where the bakers rack was in the breakfast room.

I'm planning to keep cookbooks in the door side. The section below the mirror folds down to make a desk - I forgot to take a pic of that. I'll show it again when I'm finished, if you are interested. :) Still have to figure out what to do with the two pictures that were hanging on either side of the bakers rack since this piece is wider.
