Conrail Rail Road Cabinet

Conrail Railroad cabinet

     I usually don't go near Craigslist. Today I was all over it, though, and found this nifty cabinet which used to travel on a railroad car with the welders who worked for the railroad. I think it went between (Syracuse?) New York and Dublin Ohio. It was laying down today and I can't wait to get pictures of it in my house standing up! It's a huge six feet by six feet, and it's amazing. I know you can't tell the size in this picture, but soon it will take over a prime spot in the house. I'm excited and I can't wait to show it to you! Delivery happens later this week. 

     I think this piece is a prime candidate for the milk paint line Miss Mustard Seed is debuting in a couple of weeks! The only question now is: What color?


  1. Wow Tammigirl!! this is definitely a home run!! I love vintage items!

  2. Oooh that looks awesome, I like MMS tricycle but any color would do..what's your color scheme?

  3. I could really get away with any color I want on this. I've been considering her tricycle, too. It's HUGE at 6x6 so I know I need to choose well. It almost feels like a 'can't go wrong' kind of thing.

  4. I would DIE to have that. I love it! I can't wait to see it renovated. How awesome. :)
