STEP BACK CUPBOARD

This morning my new step back cupboard arrived. I started working on it right away. It was just raw pine when it came, so I stained it inside and out then painted it with buttermilk barn red paint, then distressed and antiqued it. I just moved it inside and took the picture. It looks much better than the picture shows. It was a bit dark when we brought it in. I wanted it to dry so I left it outside until it was almost dark. It was freezing cold outside today and it even snowed a little while I was working brrrrrrrr. I was frozen by the time I got finished at 3 pm. I love it. I won't mention that my back is killing me and that I am stiff as heck :( but it was worth it!
Hope you all have a great weekend.
