Diamond in the Rough

Well, there we go ladies. Here are the pictures of my next project, as promised. Oh, I know it looks icky; but she is certainly a diamond in the rough. I love these old tool chests, the compartments, the old hardware, and the casters. Plus, this one is also a great height. There are so many possibilities, a kitchen island, tool box that it is, or just a great piece for a corner of the room. These are all good ideas, but I have other plans for her, and I can't wait to get started. First things first, this tool chest can't go anywhere till it has had a proper bathe. This will be a work in progress. No need to worry, you will be the first to see the after pics.
I can't thank you enough for stopping by.
