I knew I was just going to do a basic, lightly distressed black with this piece, so I never planed on featuring it (it's kinda boring, I know). Because of that, I never took any "before" or "during" photos. You can imagine what it looked like before. Basic 80's, medium oak. Brass, pseudo-victorian hardware.
It did have 2 glass shelves, but to update the look a little I decided to make some wood shelves instead. I'm really happy with the way they turned out. The moulding fits the style perfectly. I updated the hardware as well.
Sorry for the mugshots. This lady already sold to a friend before I finished it, so I didn't see the point of dragging it into the house to take a couple shots and then dragging it back out to the garage. Not bad for a free hand-me-down eh?
