Refurbished China Cabinet

I just completed another china cabinet "conversion".  We removed the side panels, replaced the single door and installed two doors. This opens the cabinet for easier access.

 As is my habit I never took a before photo.  This cabinet is the exact duplicate of another cabinet I refinished. 

Cabinet Detail

The cabinet has a deep drawer for storage

Muskoka Chairs

A friend gave me 4 Muskoka chairs that were in very bad shape.  We took them apart, scraped off the old paint, washed the wood with water and bleach, sealed with Zinsser primer (laquer based) and reassembled.  Every screw had to be replaced and parts traded between chairs.  Of the 4 chairs there are only 3 left.  I painted them in warm summer colours (yellow, blue & green) and sealed them with an exterior water based varnish.
