This was rather a lot of work, but I finally got the ridiculously heavy magazine bookcase upstairs in the library.

This is a rather large piece of furniture, around 4' high and nearly 5' long.  It has two magazine racks at the top which were where current issues are to be displayed; the shelf angles up so you can access older issues under that one.  You could stack just about a year's worth of magazines under each section of the shelf, and given it's spacing I figure you could easily have five or six magazines displayed side by side very easily.

Underneath are two larger (and fairly deep) fixed shelves for  heavier volumes, magazines, etc.

Colleen wasn't quite sure where it came from exactly when her grandmother passed away; all we really know is that she spotted it at a thrift store and bought it.  I have seen similar at both book stores and libraries in the past.  I shudder to think how they got it into the old house and downstairs, though I assume it was primarily thru the back down and down a nasty set of concrete steps.

But either way, when it became an obvious addition to Tanglewood once she inherited it, and she moved it up here a few months ago.  Unfortunately by the time she was done moving other things she was losing her light, so they just parked it by the apartment garage.  The intention was to come move it at some point....

....but you know how good intentions can sometimes play out.

So fast forward to this weekend, and I decide it's finally time to get this puppy upstairs where it belonged.  The job naturally fell into two pieces:  1.) get it inside the house proper and out of the garage, and then 2.)  get it upstairs.

It took both weekend days (not working on it full time mind you) but I got it done.  It's remarkably heavy, solid wood, but at least I was able to remove the shelving to help with the weight.  It's in excellent shape except on one side where it lost its trim, but I can remedy that pretty easily.   In the near term it's basically going to sit there until I have time to re-stain it though; I'm not a fan of that color myself.

But it's here!  Bwahahahahahahhahaha.........
