Old Victrola Cabinet Makeover...

 Perhaps you remember this cabinet I found a while back. It was pretty beat up and dirty and unloved when I found it at a yard sale for next to nothing.

 I cleaned it up and oiled it and thought about leaving it this dark color but the finish was still not so great so I went back and forth on weather or not I was going to paint it.

 It's got the most wonderful shelves that I'm going to store my antique sheet music in. What better place than a cabinet that used to hold old records.

 I finally decided to paint it though and I love how it turned out.
I even found the perfect handle for the door. Matches the metal casters very well.

And a little pic of me and my craft cat, Starry (so named by my youngest because of his brilliant blue eyes, his "starry" eyes). He loves to hang out with me while I craft even though I haven't gotten the chance in a while, but he's been hanging with me through the studio build and is anxious to get back to work...er... snoozing nearby while "I" work that is. LOL.
