New Storage :0)

So how should I start this story.....Once upon a time...I was on a Shop-hop across Florida....LOL!!!! 
and came across this BIG beauty for sale!! For next to nothing!!!
and bought it!!!
The End!
lol :0)

The shop owner wanted more space and let it go for a rock bottom price...So, we came back with our truck and loaded it up and drove the 1 1/2 hour home. (yeah...not fun) 

Lots and lots of storage. The draws are about 14 inches wide and 24 inches deep. 
.... and there are 30 of them.

It has a lot of scratches and dents....I was going to leave it alone (no painting it) but when we pulled it away from the corner the store owner had it in...the side you can't see...has been replaced with a thin piece of panel. It is not as thick as this left side. and it is very yucky. And the only place it will fit in my house....THAT side will show. So it will need to be replaced...which means that side will be new...and not match...so it will ALL need to be painted...

Bring on the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!!!

But as soon as quilt season passes me by and I'm NOT tethered to my machines
I will start working on this big girl and turn her into a beauty again. 

Thanks for stopping by....

I'm here...I'm just quilting...I've got show quilts I'm working on...
*Note to self...next year...don't enter any quilts into shows if they are NOT all ready DONE!!!*
...trying my best NOT to stress to much.

Ooh I don't like having deadlines...too much pressure...I guess that's why it takes so long for me to accomplish anything...taking my time...
Nice piece of furniture and I bet you know just what you're putting in it.

That is an awesome cabinet. Looking forward to seeing the makeover on it.

What a fantastic cupboard - all those deep drawers to put things in - looking forward to a photo make-over :)

Projects, projects- we never run out of them, right? Good luck with the deadlines. I'm just debating about entering a quilt that's not finished in a show- hmmm...

What a beauty! I'm sure that it will be simply lovely. Sending thoughts of fortitude for quilt finishing.

Anxious to see the outcome! It's really a super neat chest!

This would be an excellent storage cabinet for craft things or even in the garage. A bit too nice for the garage of course, but I really couldn't figure out what else I'd have that many of to go in those tiny drawers!
