As I have delcared many times before, my husband is a Saint & is going straight to Heaven after being my partner in crime the last 24 years. When I told "B" I needed him to CUT this sought after Equisit-Antique-Card-Catologe in half he thought it was high time for the white- straight- jacket, tape-over-mouth & a therapist.. Lucky for me I am pretty good at talking my way out of sticky situations.. ;) He agreed to hear me out & my "CRAZY" plan then bagan..
FIRST I needed to take all the drawers out, all 72 of them, & dismantle the Yummie Patined hardware..
Did I mention there are 72 drawers & millions of tiny screws??
THIRD "B's" time to shine.. He got "the go ahead" to CUT a piece of History in 1/2 with his manly saw..
I think "B" ENJOYED this a little 2 much..
FOURTH it was time to attach the 2 half's Side-by-Side.. Thanks "B" you did a Great job screwing & gluing..
FIFTH attaching the Legs (purchased at Lowes)EIGHTH Paint, Stain & added Trim !!
NINTH assembling all the Hardware with those tiny teensy little screws back to those 72 drawers..
!!!!! I am EXhAUSTED !!!!!
FINALLY! One of my Favorite DIY weekend projects is dOnE-Zo.
LOVE how she turned out!
One day she will have a spot in the Kitchen as a sideboard, but for now she is holding her own in the MAN CAVE.. Now if the "Men" & "Mini Teens" in my life can keep those pesky remotes, games, movies & paddles in those darn drawers, (72 if you lost count)...
(Many thanks to Adrianne & Jeremy, you 2 ROCK my World!)
