I Did It Again!

Yes, I rescued another lost soul screaming to be helped.
This cabinet is gorgeous looking- regardless of her damaged skin.
Someone had picked the machine up as a restoration project, never got around to it, and sold it to me. The top requires a new wood laminate and repairs. All of this will be an adventure for me, since I have never restored a cabinet that is this badly damaged. The machine's decals have silvered from improper cleaning at one time, while other parts of the machine are rusted. I have all the unique drawer knobs. For now, this gal will have to wait in garage until I complete a couple of quilts.

  6. Love that footprint treadle! I have a few cabinets where I planned on replacing the veneer, but after I sanded and stained the top it looked good enough to put it off for awhile...
