It started with a sturdy cabinet that was painted a color that would suck the life out of a room. I call it Downer Brown. I knew that almost anything would be an improvement. I was taking faux finishing classes at the time and was anxious to experiment with a finish referred to as "Seven Layer Peel."
I worked on this piece right in the room where I intended to use it since I really did not want to move it after painting it. I don't have steps of the process. Executing this finish was a little intense and time sensitive. So I was not thinking of pictures at the time.

Cabinet closes with a twist of the hardware at the top of the doors. The inside has three shelves and holds folded clothes and bins for socks and such. I actually had plans to cover the backside of the doors with fabric but I moved on to other projects and that never happened. (yet anyway)
I would not part with this cabinet. It is really a great storage piece.
