That's my litter box, we don't have any cats. :oops:



I kick the cats out when I have prints out.
The dust from the litter, mixed with cat urine would be what I would be worried about. Unless ALL your prints are in plastic sleeves I would move the flat file if I were you. I have cats, and know that litter dust can be a bitch to deal with.
The box is in there temporarily while we shift stuff around, it will be back to its normal spot tomorrow.

Ha. Yeah. I should have used those. Oh well.

The base is now completely stained, inside and out. I need to do one more coat on a couple of the drawers to darken them up to match the base. After that's finished, I need to decide on hardware, and get the glass cut.

Then I get to decide if I want to keep it or not.

I'll be ordering them soon. Probably tomorrow. Once they're in, I'll bring them down to the Gallery.

PMs will be turned on to make things easier. We can figure it out whenever I turn em back on.
