Off to this week’s Favorite Find – a great glass cabinet curbside find! There was a huge yard sale in my neighborhood today. I wasn’t able to get out early and by the time we drove around, it was almost over. I found this piece by the curb. It hadn’t sold and the owner left it for free to anyone who drove by. Into the van it went! It is in bad condition but nothing that can’t be fixed. Some glue and sandpaper should do the trick. The case comes apart in sections which makes it easy to transport. Score!
I’m thinking General Finishes Millstone, as in the Cottage Cabinet I finished years ago.
I will keep you posted 🙂
Oh, you find the most special pieces. this will look absolutely beautiful when you are done.

Hi Gloria – this was one of my very lucky, curbside scores lol! Thanks!
This lawyers bookcase is a super find. They are usually very expensive. Looks like a keeper to me.
Hi Laurel! Thanks so much for letting me know the exact name! It is an awesome find 🙂
Big score!!! What type is paint will you use? So excited to see what you will do. I love the glass cabinet listed below it.. Wondered what tough painted that with? Thanks
Hi Donna! It was definitely a slap job of white paint lol that is chipping (not in a good way) everywhere. I’m going to sand it back and use General Finishes milk paint on it. Love this product and it will give it a great new look – cheers!
That’s going to be a beauty, I can see it already!
I forgot to add; what about a darker color for the inside? Like a robins egg blue?
I absolutely LOVE this idea! Thanks for sharing!
As Laurel mentioned…that is indeed an antique lawyer bookcase and the good ones are usually made from mahogany. You have scored!!!
Thanks, Susan! I did totally score on this one! Happy days lol!

It’s hard to tell from the pictures. Is the bookcase an antique or a reproduction? It may be worthy of stripping and staining. Lawyer’s bookcases are so elegant … and expensive! What a great find you have on your hands. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with! Cynthia
Hi Cynthia, it actually is old but not old and elegant lol, just old! I sanded it back to smooth and used General Finishes milk paint on it. It looks SO good now! I’ll share in the week!
