Refinished Cabinet

This week as I was browsing Craigslist I came across this "cabinet" (that's what I'm calling it!)  I think it was originally some type of music thing.....Idk!  But it is OLD and SOLID and I paid only $20 for it.   So I thought it might be cute to use as a type of curio cabinet.

This poor thing was in bad shape, but I knew I was going to paint her.

 There were 2 shelves in it, but the top one had no center, and the bottom one had a large round opening it it!  You can kinda see it in this picture.  I ripped both of those out and added some of my pallet wood to create two rustic looking shelves.

Here is the finished product! I used my go-to white color:  Valspar's Polar White in Satin.  I made my homemade chalk paint with it.  Then I just distressed it!  I wanted to keep the shelves rustic looking so I stained them a walnut color instead of painting them.

I am LOVING the way my "cabinet" is looking in the corner of my living room!
