|My "scraproom" circa 2006 - with the then, red cabinet|
Yep, life was simpler then, and Dakotah was already my office assistant
Four years (and a major population explosion of supplies) later, daughter moved her bedroom downstairs and I set up my craft space in her larger room. I redecorated the room from purple and green to beige, brown and black. That's when the cabinet got it's first makeover; painted black from it's former deep red hue.

Along with nearly everything else I could paint - other than the walls
Then in late 2011, daughter returned to her room upstairs and I began to decorate my new basement art studio with an antique theme. I was determined to replace as much plastic as I could with old wood and metal -- which meant that the Sterlite drawers of my favorite cabinet now stuck out like a sore clear-plastic thumb.
Something had to be done...
So once again, thanks to hubby's help (and power tools), this past weekend we transformed it to better fit in a Victorian Studio. My trusty cabinet received a facelift of stained wood fronts and antique brass and porcelain handles. A total $24 investment (for the antique handles on eBay), as the wood and stain were already on hand.
|My cabinet today - yep, it's still a plastic organizer on the inside,|
but pretty vintage-y on the outside
