    She is doing a great job. I refinished the two that I have...they were in rough condition.

    Oh, that's GORGEOUS!!! Some of these treadle cabinets were little works of art, weren't they? I'd be so happy to have that in my living room - congratulations! :)

    Is that "son-in-law" or "sister-in-law"?

    Regardless, it is going to be fabulous!
