I get lots of requests from customers for before and after pics of some of the pieces that I sell at the shop. Well check out this beauty. Oh wait, that's the before. I must say that these pictures don't do justice to the before or the after of this piece~my camera just doesn't take good outdoor shots.My husband is used to me saying: "Pull over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I see good junk!!!" However, when I asked hime to go around the block to pick up this lovely little cabinet from the curb, he was slightly skeptical to say the least. I was just thinking that this would be a great start to our makeover
I first had David measure the bottom and back which we fitted with luan . Luan is a very thin wood, easy to cut with a table or circular saw and you can usually find small pieces at Lowes or Home Depot in the craft wood section. It's perfect for furniture backing and I also use it to make my chalkboards.
