Gotta love the weekends…because folks do some cleaning and toss stuff out. On Sunday I found two RUSTY metal cabinets. I haven’t ever cleaned anything that was this rusty. The P L A N . . . clean up the rust (do you sand it, if so, with what?), seal the remaining rust and spray paint white. I am thinking that if all goes well, including getting the left door open on the double door cabinet…I will try to put it in my bedroom closet to replace the dresser that is in there. I have always wanted a cabinet in my tiny closet, as you can open the doors and see everything at once with out having to open each drawer…yes, I am lazy! I actually think it will make the two turns on my 1906 narrow stairway…unlike the other free find cabinet. By the way, I sold the other free find on Craigslist…the buyer lived just a few blocks away and was planning to paint it and use as a linen closet in a cabin…so perfect…make me happy!
I even like the lock on the cabinets.
This single unit will probably end up in the garage or basement. If it goes in the garage I may put some plastic bins in it and use to hold my recycling…that way I won’t have to look at all those goodies each time I get in my car.
Thanks for stopping by…
