Rusty Old Metal Cabinet Turned Butcher Block Island

2 Weeks
It all started when I spotted an old rusted-out kitchen cabinet in a friend's pasture. I just had to have it. I knew with my (Honey's) help that this baby could be born again:)

Yep, it has seen better days.
We used plywood that we already had to repair the back and bottom.
Plywood on the back. It helped to square and shore up the cabinet.

I used Rust-Oleum Stainless Steel Paint on the metal and wood.
