While there is nothing wrong with a gun cabinet…..it’s just not me.
I have nothing against guns but having them out for the word to see isn’t my style.
Dads gun cabinet has been hiding in the back of the hoard for years. He used to display his prized gun collection.
I never knew what to do with it so it sat collecting dust.
One day, I needed/wanted a new project so I pulled it out.
I put out a Facebook post asking what it could be. There were so many great ideas.
I knew I wanted to remove the scrolly (is that a word?) from the top and sides.
Those came off easily the back was also falling apart so I cut a new piece and fixed it
I found an inspiration photo I really liked. I would love to say it’s outside of my norm, but it’s not.
I really wanted the full door hardware, but I couldn’t make it work.
I added shelves
I painted the body white and I stripped and stained the door.
It now lives in our piano room
It’s holds some sweet mementos from Dad and Steves Mom.
