This was the greatest project. We bought this beautiful old cabinet from the early 1900s. It must have weighed 10,000 pounds. We had so much trouble moving it around. We thought once we got it to our store, how would we ever get it out of there!!! So, we had this idea to seperate the top from the bottom. It easily unscrewed. We are using the top in our home as a cabinet and we repainted the bottom so that we could offer it in the store. What a change. Amazing what some paint can do. But, it is still heavy!!
