I've Been Working On The Railroad

     Railroad cabinet, that is.

Today I got a great surprise and the big honkin' railroad cabinet was delivered days early!
Here she is in the garage.
Inside one of the doors are lots of rows of holes which held some tools
This is the view behind some of the doors.



This is about the way I plan to sand her down - not to bare wood. I want to keep some of the paint underneath.

What's that? Something is peaking out at me.


       
I had told myself I would let the piece talk to me and tell me what color it wanted to be, but this was beyond my hopes! 
It's going to be Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint - Tricycle Red!

     Now I need to bring it inside, get it cleaned up some more, mount it on the wall for sensible safety reasons, and wait for Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint to debut in a couple of weeks!
