Horsey Cabinet Face Lift!!

I've told you I grew up on a horse farm. Well, I went out to my parents old barn to shop.  No, they don't make me pay for junk, I just pretend I am shopping.... The barn is next door to me. Low and behold, I found some cool stuff.  Remember the old doors?  I also found a dressing screen, and an old cabinet that used to hold horsey supplies, like fly spray, etc.... Okay, the cabinet was pretty disturbing. It had some serious problems,  like, dirt daubers, dirt, and more gross things, I will spare you....Still, I could see something cool behind it all.  For 2 days, I scrubbed, bleached- yes, bleached! I sanded, I pulled a rotten shelf off the bottom, and painted. She is almost done.  Hubby is makin me a new shelf ( out of old wood) for the bottom.  I still have some sanding and wax to apply.  I think she is going in my dining room to display my pretties. I am becoming attached!  My dining room used to be a school room. Yes. I home schooled.  I am glad I did, but now, that everyone is in "real" school (ha ha)....I am going to make an actual dining room again. We have a big family and it is nice to have another room, to use when everyone is over.  We can split people up, between the kitchen and dining room. I will show yall the slow transformation back to dining room, as we do it.....For now,  here is horsey cabinet face lift, enjoy!!

Oh she is so pretty already. It has always amazed me at how you can invision amazing things in normal, everyday, wornout stuff. You are truly an artist, and I am so thankful for all the things I have learned from you over the years. You should really consider doing classes. I would pay good money to work on a project with your instruction once a week. What a way to get out of the house and have fun together creating something beautiful and useful under the skillful eye of an artist. Something to think about...??

Fabulous! Yes, Wendy, she is an artist.How sweet that God gave you a gift to transform things, just like He does us. He pulls us out of the old barn, cleans us up and brings us right into His family <3
