I had the intent to fix this very sad looking armoire and sell it for a summer project in between school semesters. When I found it it had been left out in the sun and very badly weathered. so I sanded it down took off some broken doors and painted it white and saved it from the dump and gave it a few more years of life. I liked it so much I never re-copped the cost and I just kept it. I needed something in my room badly and it worked out great. it has housed many possession and kept them from making my room look messy so I guess it is doing its job perfectly. I am much grateful for this piece.
