Last week I found a cabinet for free and saw that it had some potential under the beat up ugly white paint job. From the inside I could see that it was mostly made of some kind of wood, but it was pretty beat up, so I figured I could only salvage the drawer front and paint the rest of it.

- Attached 6″ Mid Century Modern style wood & metal legs from Home Depot
- 2 coats of tung oil (on the drawer and legs only)
