Restored old horse tack trunk to liquor cabinet


Bob found this old tack in a burn pile. The bottom was rotted out and was in bad shape. He replaced the bottom with plywood, used railing knobs for feet, lined the inside with cedar, cut holes in the cedar to make wine rack, strips of cedar to slide wine glasses and I painted it with tan under coat and off white crackle . very nice addition to our dinning room
