I finally have it stained. Been working on this one for 3 weeks. 1/2 hour here, 1/2 hour there, etc. I HATE working like that , BUT, we do what we have to do ! This cabinet stands 46” high, is 18” deep x 26” wide. It has 1 drawer at top, 2 pull out serving trays, and the bottom behind the window is storage. I used an old house door as the main frame of sides. Cleaning the old paint and stain almost took longer than the construction. I did leave some flakes of paint “Patina thing”. I have stained the main cabinet with minwax Dark Walnut. The top of the cabinet is a solid 1 piece walnut. To get the top a darker color I had mixed BLACK Walnut watco oil with black tremclad paint. (Mixture is half -half). The legs are trimmed post tops. (Sorry neighbor, ah, don’t know them anyway….joking). I stll have to give it several coats of clear satin poly-acrylic.
Each tray holds 5 bottles of wine. My next door is going to be a linen cabinet. (We don’t drink wine)

Very very cool use of an old door!
