DIY: Mid-Century Cabinet

This is one of my first real furniture do-ups, and I couldn't be prouder! 
A few months ago, I was perusing my favourite shop, The Dump Shop (yes they do get claim most of their items from the dump next door - gutted I didn't think of that first), I came across the find of the year, nay the find of the century. As I rounded a dusty corner, I bumped into a wooden, not veneer, mid-century drawer-set. Ah, I said to myself, this'll be spensie. It's wooden and everything. To my surprise, and extreme pleasure, the price tag indicated in was only $20. Twenty dollars. This seems to be unheard of in NZ, where many a good kiwi loves to up-cycle second gems. Needless to say, I made a beeline for the counter and brought it as quick as could be. 
A few weeks later, and with the help of my amazing "other-half", we now have a modern, yet classic TV cabinet. And we only spent about $70 total. That surely is one helluva bargain, if I do say so myself!
