I forgot (as usual) to take before photos. But here is the condition of the drawers. I had planned to paint the cabinet red because I thought the finish was too bad to save. But after a closer look, I got out the Barkeepers Friend and started scrubbing to see if I could clean it up.
This side was the worst. I hoped that the bad place was just dirt, but no, it was rust.
The front kickplate paint was chipped, but inside the contact paper probably saved the big storage shelf.
To work! (Note to self--buy gloves next trip to town.)
And here it is, after the cleaning but before the hardware was put back on.
