Stepback

 Here is our new "pantry".  It is an 1850-70 stepback cupboard.   We first loaded the old Pastry Cabinet that was there into the pickup truck.  It actually was done in two trips to our store.  We set it back up there and priced it before we came back here.
Then we lifted the top half up on the bottom.  I am good at lifting but the bottom half is chest high so
lifting it up there was a challenge but Bob is strong and kept it steady.  Then it was time to fill it up.  It took all that I had in both the pastry cabinet and the bookshelf plus one kitchen cabinet.  We are very happy with this new look.  It was worth all the work and the rain storm yesterday.  I  only wish there was some way to know who had this first and what they did.

What a fantastically wonderful find! It goes sow ell in your home too and was worth the effort, as you said. You found a solution:):):)

what a great cabinet! It really would be fun to know the places it has seen and the functions it preformed. There are stories there, and that is what makes antiques so very cool.
