Hidden Treasure

Good morning! I hope you all have been having a fabulous week thus far. Only one more day until the weekend, I know that I am looking forward to it. This cabinet was a hidden treasure found in the back of someones garage. It was tucked away in the corner just awaiting it's day of being tossed out by the road. Luckily my husband saw the potential in it and brought it home to me. Along with my husband I could see the treasure in this piece.
I looked through my options of paint and immediately thought that it would look best cream. Of course I am never content with leaving anything just cream, it was in dire need of some pizazz. Here is what this treasure looked like before.

 After much scrubbing and a few patches I decided to go with cream for the outside. I finished it off with a mint green for the inside and around the edges to give it an antique look. Then to really polish off the look I decided to add some little wood moldings on the doors. I kept the original hardware but I painted and antiqued it to match the rest of the piece. Below is the final treasure.
