    Beautiful job, Candace. Very beautiful.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    But, I finished this one up and I'm happy(ish) with the results. It was in very poor condition to start with, missing chunks of veneer and was antiqued with some horrible paint that had drips everywhere and was a nightmare to get off. The finish isn't as smooth as I'd like but at least now it can look in the mirror without being embarrassed. A 15 clone came out of it, but I think it's a Singer table.

    Here are the before and after pics.
    Wow!! You would never know it was the same cabinet! Great job!

    I haven't sold one yet, but I'll have to think about that because I just don't have the room for any more cabinets.

    I sold a bunch of 4-legged cabinets before I moved. I got the lawnmower boxes from Lowes, Home Depot, and people's yards on trash day as free boxed to ship them in. Take the legs off, wrap everything appropriately, tie the lids and doors down so they can't open in transit, and they are easy to ship.

    eta: Also, I use that flat-sheet styrofoam insulation to ensure that the cabinet doesn't get gouged up in transit, too. I shipped a Queen Anne cabinet and stool from WV to West Coast by FedEx Ground and it arrived in perfect condition. I use it for shipping the sewingm machine head, too. That rigid foam works well to keep large things from digging out of cardboard boxes.
