The perfect piece

I finally found a cabinet for the small space in my bathroom.  I needed a bit more storage so I began my search for the perfect piece.  It has taken about two years, but so worth the wait.  To distress it, I first painted the entire piece martha stewart harbor grey (visible on the drawer pulls).  Secondly, using a butter cream color, I painted over that.  It took me an entire day to scrape the entire piece with a straight blade. I chose to leave the inside of the cabinet painted butter cream (see photo below).  Lastly, I waxed the entire piece.  The results...
The top holds a hobnail collection and the bottom is the extra storage I needed!
An old piece that now has a fresh clean distressed look
How perfect is that!
Bee well, Elizabeth
