Good day and thanks for stopping by!! We are a couple of old timers,just trying to make ends meet! We have a gigantic PASSION for recycling/upcycling/repurposing old,unwanted,neglected primitive,antique items. With each one,we will create a uniQue,1-of-a-kind item for your home which will be both useful AND decorative. We have been doing this for over 10 years and it brings us great pleasure AND it also helps us pay our bills!! We have to exist solely on social security and that's so hard. My 77 year old hubby has always loved to work with wood and is a "self-taught" carpenter. (He was a meat-cutter until age 72!) I am the creator of ideas and the "finisher." He is the builder!! In the past year ,his health has failed and now his memory,too. When I saw this coming last summer,we pushed ourselves to make lots of cabinets so we would have a good inventory saved up to hopefully last us for a few years. We depend so much on the income from our etsy and ebay sales. PLEASE know how much we appreciate EVERY sale! Getting to know and enjoy each customer is a PASSION of mine,especially! Many times the connection happens because we are both animal lovers! I am a firm believer of rescuing pets from shelters,rather than breeders. I have been doing this for many years and trust me,those dogs thank you everyday of their lives! By creating for etsy and reaching out to my customers to be "the best I can be" AND loving my pets,is why God put me on earth,I feel. Let me not forget raising our 4 children and loving my 11 grandkids and 10 granddogs,too!
O.K., now I will get down to business,which is surely why you stopped by-----The washboard cabinet that I am now listing is AWESOME! It is a ? "ECONOMY WOOD PRODUCTS" ? washboard by Howard Woodenware." The lettering on the front is barely legible but I can see some of the faint red letters and knowing what I know about the companies and the models,this is what I think it is. The back of the washboard has NO lettering that is visible. The washboard was used lots and lots! So much charm!! I am just glad I never had to wash my families dirty clothes with a tub and washboard! YIKES! But, I can actually feel the connection with my ancestors who HAD to do their laundry this way! LOVE MY MAYTAG!!! I BUY THE WASHBOARDS AND TRY TO FIND THE REALLY CHARMING,INTERESTING ONES THAT WOULD HAVE A STORY TO TELL,if they could! I do not change the washboard in any way except to give it a coat of Minwax Polycrylic for protection. Then my 76 year old hubby makes the cabinet from 3/4" pine and plywood. I pick out and buy the hardware,using antiques as often as possible. This cabinet has my all time fav handle I found at an antique sotre! I saw how well it worked with some of the washboards,so I went back and bought all they had. We have used all of them and when the cabinets using them are gone,they are gone forever! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM AND I KNOW YOU WILL,TOO!This cabinet is EXTRA LARGE and it measures 26" x 13 1/4" x 5" deep. The 2 shelves inside are almost 10" and 6 1/2". We use tight latch closures so therefore we suggest hanging the cabinets by drilling 2 screws in through the back,into the wall,but you can use 2 sawtooth hangers on the 2 upper back corners,if you prefer. We add a towel bar at the bottom,which can also be used for ties,belts,jewelry,scarves or dog leashes. We used antiqued silver hinges to match the handle and scrubbing surface,which is also magnetic! I will send you a BONUS of an old clothespin that I have made into a magnet so you can use it on the door to hold a memo! We sign and date the back of each cabinet,too. NOTE---the last photo of a close up of how "USED AND WORN" the cabinet is---perhaps marks from the wash tub or gnawing from a critter?????? I have 6 of these cabinets hanging on my home and use them for medicine cabinets,a spice cupboard,toiletries,first aid,laundry supplies,dog meds and grill supplies. They make super gifts,too,especially for those who really appreciate recycling antiques into unique household items--AND perfect for that person who has "everything." You can be sure they don't have a "1-of-a-kind" WASHBOARD CABINET.
Thanks again for visiting our store! Have a great day.God bless-----
