I have wanted an antique spool cabinet for a while - but they have usually been out of my budget.
I came across these two cabinets at a flea market - they are handmade cabinets - same size and shape as the sewing cabinets I have seen.
I didn't particularly like the finish or the handles on this one (but I do like the cat on top who decided she might want this one for herself).
I lightly sanded the cabinet and applied a black stain over the current finish, to make it look older, more antiqued.
I found some spool cabinet drawer decals online, and stuck those on. Found some knobs at Home Depot, drilled new holes and put those on.
And that is my "antique" spool cabinet. I'm working on the second one too, and will eventually stack one on top of the other.
