apothecary cabinet

this is my new old apothecary cabinet. i have always loved these and now that i have one im so excited. i just need to refinish it not sure how to do it but its my new project so this is the before picture.

cant wait to get started.....its from the 1920's it was in a drug store in PA.

my neighbor tom had it in his garage and i asked about it a couple of years ago and he said he wasnt surewh athe was going to do with it..

so a couple of weeks ago he said he was ready to get rid of it and asked me if i still wanted it....yessssssssssss......this is the best piece of furniture ive ever had....

i quess you can tell i love anitques..i would so rather have something old with character that something new......i love all the little drawers...

I'm very jealous!! I have often seen these in shops and hoped they would sell it but they won;t part with it ... one day ....
oooo I love this too! I can see why you've been drooling over it! Lucky to have a neighbor that remembered you wanted it instead of putting it on Craigslist or something similar. Great find!! I love old stuff too :)

So funny, Michelle, I just got one similar to this but it is metal. It has 27 drawers and I have already started filling them up!
