Ok... I can't stand it any longer... I've got to show you

This is my project...  I picked this up a few months ago at a thrift shop.

I wish I would have gotten pics of it at the very beginning.  It was just a little cupboard, where the large opening is there was a wicker front bin (I removed it)

I striped layers and layers of paint, leaving just a bit here and there.

I removed the top and cut it down, made the sides, front and back pieces yesterday..  Put it together to make myself a Dry Sink!

We got our grubby clothes on and Maygan helped me paint

Painted and waiting til morning to sand

Up and out to the garage this morning I went, just chomping at the bit to get started.  I sanded and stained it.  Dodged the raindrops to bring it in the house.

I still need to wax it and will make a cheesecloth curtain for the large opening.  I haven't yet decided whether to make a backer board for the tall opening or not.  What do you think, yes or no?

So, I repurposed this $10.00 cupboard into a prim Dry Sink, I saved all the original hardware, used lumber and paint that I already had, what a deal!

Now........wax it and fill it up!
