Tool cabinet became our food cabinet


I really wish I would have taken a good “before picture” of this cabinet, but instead I only took one of it laying in the back of our car. Doesn’t tell you that much, but it had been in a garage its whole life (30 years maybe?)  and it sure looked that way. We found it in an internet ad and drove it straight to dad´s car-paint-shop.

Now it looks alot better, see below. We love it! And we love dad!

Today I went to Copenhagen for a Dos Visit. I will show you tomorrow, today I have to rest my belly.

PS: I updated the Family Photo Tour today. Go have a look!

Wow, älskar gamla arkivskåp, skåp från gamla omklädningsrum eller skolor. Tur att ha en pappa som din.

Åh vad fint det blev, jag vill också ha en billackerare i familjen!

Helt underbart superhärligt blev det! Jag vill också ha ett sånt.

Appråpå att ta dåliga förebilder, jag är expert på det, man grämer sig rätt rejält sen.

Supersnyggt och kalasbra! Det är ju toppen att ha en pappa som din. Fin ordning där i skåpen också. ;)

ps, har du sett skåpen med siffror på som föräldrarna till Bertil i Nils Karlsson Pyssling har sina kläder i på fabriken de jobbar? Ska lägga upp en bild sen. Så grymt snygga!

I absolutely love this – reuse at its best. It still retains it’s utalitarian feel, but painted in such fun colors (and against that beautifully graphic wallpaper), it becomes such a wonderful art piece, almost. I love it! Great, great job!
