Ok New theory. Husband still not wanting to cut open BUT we did notice something interesting. This back up to - on the other side is a hallway and directly behind is an old phone cubby. SO - We do think maybe this is an original cabinet with the bottom access to phone lines??????? Thoughts on the new theory? And I may be in there overnight with a knife prying it open - so curious....
Nice mix of colors for the tiles I must say. Well you could use it to store your cosmetics, medicines or first aid kit. I wouldn't force open the lower part and use the upper part for whatever I can.
Just goes to show that you never know what you'll come across in an old house!
I was going to guess it was where they kept the Flux Capacitor or perhaps ghost storage. You never know.
It's this old house, not this built after your dad was born house.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
