My New Old Cabinet

I have a makeover to share. 
Long in the making and not exactly completely finished.  
But close enough that I thought I could share.

A can of paint and a paintbrush can do wonders.

If you visit my blog you may have seen these before.  
I bought them for $6.50 for the pair at a visit to the flea market.

This is a cabinet that my husband built for me several years ago.  
I have mentioned that the house we just sold was decorated in primitive country.

I didn't want to part with this and we have no room for it in storage.
It did not go with the look I am looking for in the new place.

I really wanted to make it into a statement piece.  

So I chose a WOW color...It is called Weathered Glass.  

It looks like the color of the antique blue glass canning jars.

So here is my new cabinet!

Yes it is still missing hardware and I am thinking about distressing it some.  
I have been looking for knobs for about 2 months now and can not find the ones that just "speak" to me.

We used it through the holidays as the drink station.

Top Shelf.

Middle Shelf.  The jars are not monogrammed.  
Those are my initial  plates leaned up behind the jars.

Bottom shelf.  Leftovers of the holiday drink station.

My new shelf...very different for me and a new direction.

Thanks for visiting and checking out my cabinet makeover.  Let me know what you think!
