    This cabinet has been in my family for many years, and I've no need for it in my move, regarding in the kitchen (as it's always been used). Originally my dad got it out of a rather large yacht that was put on shore, and used as a home, along Lake Michigan, in Upper Michigan. Well in my current move, I want to make my 2nd bedroom as wonderful as possible for my sewing room/studio. So I've decided to use it for FABRIC & THREAD! Yes, fabric on the shelves, thread on the door shelves, and lesser used items in the way up there cupboard.

    Can you tell I'm moving? LOL

    That top cabinet might be a good place for storing a few rolls of batting in. Wonderful for fabric storage!

    This is a wonderful piece of furniture and I will bet it was custom built for that boat. I love the idea of using all those door shelves for threads! Enjoy!
