one for myself...

Most of the projects I've been doing recently I've been selling, but this one I just had to keep for myself. You may remember that I found this Chippendale style china cabinet on Craigslist a few weeks back. When I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for our "office". (aka the third bedroom w/ the computer)

Here it was "before"



I've been so inspired recently by vintage looking Swedish furniture and decided this needed to be quite distressed as well.



To add a little more "pop" to the piece I decided to paint the interior "Light Silver Sage" from Restoration Hardware. I had some extra lying around from painting my master bath and thought it would be perfect! What do you think??
