|One project down, many more to finish!

Finally! I completed a project.
This old armoire was gifted to me by oakleaves who was about to throw it out. It was exactly what I was looking for to hide all my scuba gear and ski equipment in. However, there was a missing mirror panel, and we had to disassemble it (using crowbars...ahem) to remove it from his place.
That was in October. It looked like this:
Fortunately I was able to reassemble it into something stronger than it had been at oakleaves' place, thanks to a few parts from Home Depot.
oakleaves later also had a mirror with a chipped corner that he was wanting to throw out, but it was large enough to cut a replacement mirror pane from, so I acquired it from him.
And that's how the project stayed, until today...
What's more, the guy at the glass cutting place wouldn't even charge me for cutting the mirror down to size! 3 cuts, a quick sanding, and it got DONE. And he did this even though the glass shop was technically closed!
It took me only about 10 minutes (and 10 months) to install the new mirror panel.
