Fringe benefits of walking the dog...

I am getting more than exercise walking the dog these days. While walking the dog last week I found the wood door and while walking the dog today I found the cream cabinet. Fortunately my friend Kathy was around to help me load the door, unfortunately I had to load the cabinet by myself. I only dropped it once...no damage. The plan is to get the broken pane on the door replaced and paint it white. and during the winter months use it in place of the screen door on the porch. Click on photos to enlarge.

The cabinet is sturdy. Love the molding on the top and the beadboard back and the old fashion design on the doors. The cream cabinet has multiple possibilities...may paint it and use it as a wardrobe in my tiny closet or it may end up as storage for quilt fabric if I can find room in the house or in the garage or basement as storage or for sale on craigslist. My first choice is to put it in the closet...it would be wonderful to open the doors and see all the clothes at once versus having to open dresser drawers. Height (46.5) and width (12.75) aren't the problem, it is the length (45.5).
