Antique Cabinet Redo!

Happy Easter Everyone!

Here is a cabinet my father picked up last summer to refinish. He didn't get around to it before he passed away. I decided to paint it rather than strip the finish off. It was like it had been painted brown with a brown glaze.
Here is a picture of how it looks before:

This is the picture of the cabinet after:

The inside has a chalkboard area too!
I painted it to match my medicine cabinet. Here is a link to that project.
I hope you liked my painted cabinet.

Antique Medicine Cabinet Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Makeover

Happy Spring everyone!
I know it doesn't quite feel like spring around here. We have been below zero all week here and I'm hoping it's going to get warmer next week. I really want the snow to melt and to be able to see some green grass! This winter I thought I would refinish this old medicine cabinet with some Annie Sloan Chalk paint. I love how cute it is and the details it had. This is it before:

The inside didn't have the original paint stripped off it. I scrapped and sanded so the new paint would have a smooth surface. I even had to fill two holes which likely were where the cabinet had been screwed to the wall.

The top needed to be glued and clamped as it was separating a little.
Here is the after in Old White ASCP.

The inside of the cabinet and drawer I painted Provence ASCP with an accent of grey chalkboard paint. I finished it off with clear wax. I love it and think it's the cutest medicine cabinet!
What do you think?
