    Forgive me but I think there is more wrong there that you might see at first glance. If I am not mistaken the Irons are facing forward, the drawers are facing forward, but isn't that the back of the cabinet? Where is the center drawer? I think that the cabinet is on the base backwards and the drawers are inserted from the back/now front, of the cabinet. This is all kinds of off kilter.

    LOL! I was making fun of the "Add a note of elegance to your home with an old Singer sewing machine and this rustic lamp." in the ad. Yes, that cabinet is seriously messed up. I can't figure out how the one bank of drawers would stay like that...

    I hope this helps.

    I was thinking of not moving the cabinet, period.

    that one sorta reminds me of a story... I was out on my trusty bicycle and I saw a pickup go around the corner with a piano... well the piano didn't make the corner. It flipped over and did a cartwheel. It made a grand noise as it splintered into wood and crazy wires and piano keys all over the road.... When I got home our piano was missing... my mom sold it...
