Dish Cabinet

Free standing cabinet out of alder. 18 × 42 × 52 high. Three adjustable shelves. Lightly dis stressed rubbed through paint.

What type of paint did you use, milk paint maybe? Looks good.

Professional work for sure.

I really like the extra details on this . . . the beading around the doors and end panels and the nicely shaped feet. Thanks for sharing.

I agree re: the distressing!! Very nice.
How many shelves inside?

I have a guy that does all the finish work for me, I never finish at thing myself. I do know that’s it’s not milk paint though. I’ll ask him what he did and let you all know. There is three shelves inside.
Thanks everyone for you kind comments!

I was going to ask, but you just answered my questions Les. Thanks. I personally like the looks of slightly distressed furniture because it brings life into the piece, and wonderment as to how it was used, where, etc.

did we ever find out what the finish process was?
