New life for an old cabinet

Project number two is officially completed. I had it done at the beginning of the week but I needed to get new knobs.  Here is the before picture. 080 This cabinet was a gift from my parents for my 21st birthday. It has been used in many different rooms as storage over the years. I'll leave you to guess how many. :) It is currently my canned goods pantry. I got sick of staring at the yellow pine wood and just knew some paint would give it a new life. What do you think? It's the first thing I see when I walk into the kitchen in the morning. 008 A little distressing to give it the feel of age. The door not shutting all the way anymore helps too. :) 009 The clock was a wedding present from a family friend.  He made it out of quarter sawn ash, knowing my love for the Arts and Crafts movement. I love how it stands out with the painted cabinet now. 010 For those interested the color is called Swiss Coffee by Behr. It works well with the yellow walls. 007Now to move on to another project.
For as soon as I finish one I come up with 100 more...
