Subject: RE: Declutter & Exercise - NOV````2012
Lovely day! I've been taking apart the piece of furniture that I want to modify into a buffet. It was well-made but treated poorly. I'm guessing it's from the 40s. It has old furniture screws on the back of the mirror frame (that had no mirror). I'm going to use that on the back to enclose the kneehole and put in a bottom and a shelf and cupboard doors. I'm going to use wood putty to fill in on the top gap in the veneer before sanding it (I was originally thinking I could mend the veneer with more veneer, but have decided to instead to smooth and paint. Then I'll top it with glass or a mirror.)

For exercise I'll be taking the dogs for a walk, and probably working in the garden some more.
