And now, for something completely different

I found this old sewing cabinet at a thrift shop in Roseburg and thought it would fit my sewing machine. We'll see about that - I haven't taken the old one out to try it yet.

This cabinet had in the drawers all the machine attachments, owners guides and the original receipt from 1940! With the purchaser's name and address. And it had mouse poop! Lots of it! Picture me doing the Eww! Eww! Eww! Dance.

I had a wild urge to do something really rustic and there sat this cabinet.... maybe not an appropriate candidate but it was handy.

And so I began.

And continued

And the details - after sanding and waxing

Until I had this

Now that I'm more comfortable with the Totally Rustic look, I'm ready for the next project. I found this little goody at the GW and I can hardly wait to dive in. Rustic is what this little guy is all about.

So, now I have around 7 things that are "up next." Hmmmm. Better get to work!
