Curio Cabinet turned Chameleon Terrarium! Part 1

I am SOOO excited about my current big project!  Weird I know, who would have thought a piece of furniture created to house cheesy knickknacks and old glassware would turn out to be a fabulous new home for a reptile?!  I have to give credit where it is due, I got this idea from one of my fave blogs Life, Crafts, and Whatever.  She turned her curio cabinet into a new home for her three geckos.  I needed something similar for our new addition to our family so I borrowed her idea but changed it up to better suit the needs of our little dinosaur :)
I searched Craigslist for a couple weeks or so and with no luck I decided to look at some local antique/thrift shop and I found this gem.  I talked the lady down to $38 bucks, it has a space on the bottom to store bugs (aka food) and gear and it also has a built in light on the top...Awesome!  I am going to finish it over this coming week.  It is my spring break so I will have a lot of extra time.  Check back in about a week to see the finished product!
