A few months ago I wrote of salvaging the bookshelves that we tore out of what had been the den in this house, and using it in my sewing room (see posting here) . You may remember the whole thing looked like this when we bought this place. We couldn't save all the shelving, but we were able to pull 2/3 of cabinetry and all the shelves from the trash heap.

There are two shallow shelving units that will fit on top, but I haven't even begun working on those yet. They're still in the garage housing my hubby's odds and ends...but they're next. They aren't very deep, but they should hold a plethora of odds and ends. I'll have to cut about 3-4 inches off the bottom so they clear the crown molding in the sewing room....I don't want to mess with crown molding....I'm neither that ambitious nor talented! LOL

The last step was to get these doors' hardware remounted, and then hanging them back onto the credenza. I'm using the original 1950s hardware which is copper (see the top picture). Oh, I do love copper.

So, until the next time ......... peace and blessings to you all.
