Trash!

Look what my neighbors had next to their garbage can along side the curb this morning! I saw it and headed out the door, forgetting in my excitement that I was wearing just a tshirt. I ran back inside, threw on some clothes and lugged this thing across the street, while my neighbor two doors down stopped his leaf blower to stand and watch me. The cabinet has a sticker on the back that says "Ernest and Julio Gallo Winery." The neighbor whose trash I pulled it from works for a liquor store so I imagine it was a display piece, but its pretty nice, all wood, no mdf. Now, to find someone to paint it espresso for me.....

I am so envious, I want this. Can I go knock on your neighbors and get one myself?
