an estate sale, it had some good bones, no dents and the rust was just surface rust. With a lot of elbow grease and time, I was able to sand, wash, and paint the cabinet within a few hours and now I love it! It can be used for many purposes...bathroom storage, kitchen to hide all those utensils or just for a sunporch to put all your garden accessories! Of course, if I had my way, it would be on a enclosed porch or garden filled with different herbs and flowers! How cool!
