My husband brought me home a surprise a couple of weeks ago. 

 He found this wonderful cupboard on the curb.  Someone had thrown it away.  In better shape than these pictures show in the before pics. 

The paint was still in tact, I scraped it to see the wood.  The glass was unbroken, even the shelf paper was in good condition. 

 But with a little bit of love, some sanding, painting, a new knob and adding some pulls to the drawer as well as  adding top moulding for some character, new shelf front moulding (to put a facade in front of the curvy shelf I didn’t like)

and it’s a different piece altogether. 

I bet if they saw it now they wouldn’t have sent it to the landfill. 

Here it is in my kitchen.  Still have to put some stuff in it but that will be no problem. 

 One can never get enough cupboard space.
