Dreary Monday!

It's a dreary Monday, but am hoping for rain, the drought is awful!  I am praying that there's more rain coming than they're anticipating today and that there's more down the line.

Hubby and his brother went to a ranch sale on Saturday and bought me a couple surprises.  One is an old chest but I don't have a photo of it yet, not sure where hubby put it.  It needs bit of work, but it's really cool and is going to be beautiful hopefully when we're done with it.

The other item they bought me was an old tool chest that's heavier than a son of a gun.  It also needs some work but mostly cosmetic.  Hubby is cleaning it up and then it will get painted.  I'm probably going to leave it red and black but it looks like it was originally green.  It was probably from one of the Air Force Bases in the area we figure.  I took a couple of pictures this morning but they don't show how cool it is.  I didn't think to take any pictures before we took all the drawers out and put the cabinet on the table to clean it up.  Looks like it was in a barn or shed for years and if full of cobwebs and one hornets nest.  lol

This is the cabinet on top of the workbench.  Went out yesterday and got some wheels for it and I can hear hubby outside working on it!!  lol

Here are some of the drawers ready to be cleaned up and painted.  There are 24 drawers total in 2 different sizes.  Can't wait for it to be done and put it in my scrap room and fill the sucker up!!

Have a great Monday and will continue to take pictures of the progress and keep your fingers crossed for a good rain.
