    Very nice. Enjoy.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Nice, and you have the stool too! I hardly ever see those around here with the cabinets.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Good score. You will have fun with her. Good that the seat is still with it and in good condition too. Very pretty.

    Thanks everyone, digging in tomorrow. Some cleaning and oil will go a long way to making her as smooth as she ever was.
    Math is what makes it all go around.

    Speaking of cabinets. How do you tell the model number.
