We had skills and we weren't afraid to use them- shop vacs, saws-alls, power tools galore. Our garage is full of tools for every DIY project you might think of.
Since we are redoing the 1980 house we bought in SLC, Ut those tools and DIY skills have re-emerged.
After a long day of tiling a bathroom, I saw the above cabinet in the garage leftover by the previous owner. It was dusty. Like, 20 years of dust caked on it. I didn't get a picture of the lovely gold medallions that went on the front, because they had been detached years ago. The whole thing looked straight out of "I Dream of Genie"'s living room.
After I washed the cabinet and nailed the back piece in its original place and figured out that those medallions actually went with this cabinet, my brain started to move into gear. Not only was there a stamp on the back that said "Lane"- yes, meaning high quality furniture, but I realized it would be super cute painted.
