The Connecticut Cabinet

As promised last week, here is the photo of the cabinet I picked up at The Elephant's Trunk Flea Market in Connecticut when I went two weekends ago.  I don't usually pick a piece in need of so much work.  This needs to be stripped, sanded, scoured, rebuilt in places, restored in others and painted.  It is such a unique piece, however, that I just had to give it a go.  I think the bottom door panels will be removed completely and fabric put in their place.  I am trying to decide about color.  I will work on it for the September Market.  Hopefully, I don't fall in love with the finished product and need to keep it, cause I don't know where it could possibly go.  Wish me luck!
