Tag Sale Find, Wash Stand

I found this old cabinet, (commode/wash stand) from a local garage sale on my way home from work a few weeks ago. It needed a little tlc, so I scrubbed it, oiled it and glued the door panel back on. I paid $40 which didn't seem like a great bargain but it was better than the $65 they were asking. I put it in my kitchen with my other oak furniture. It is now Nico's doggy storage. The spoiled guy has something like 23 sweaters and 6 coats, plus a bunch of grooming supplies, etc. I recently took his closet away to make a big craft center, I owe it to him. (yes, he had his own closet, don't judge me!)

That's a beautiful cabinet! Nico couldn't get in the living room anymore, so you really owed this to him ;-).

Hi Michelle!
I personally think that was a great deal and it's perfect! When I had a dog at my parents house we had a special closet just for him too :)

It's beautiful and in very good condition. Many people have special closets or drawers or cabinet shelves for their doggies. They just accumulate so much stuff:)

I'd say that that is a steal at $40-! Good job! Looks great and purposeful to top it off!
