Yesterday, I found a guy that used old slide cabinets from Boulder Community Hospital, and he converted them into end tables. Color is really going to pop in our new mostly gray house and I bought a pair.

Then today, I found an old, super heavy all meta cabinet, used by a railroad (ad said Santa Fe, sticker says Union Pacific). We degreased it and washed decades worth of grime. Once it’s fully dry, I’ll hit it with a coat of flat clear, and I’ll keep all the old imperfections and stencil marks. We’ll use it as a booze bar.
