The top of this cabinet was refinished and the bottom was built from scratch.I used varathane light walnut stain.The top had set in a barn for 35yrs and had 13 coats of paint on it.

What a fantastic piece. You really did a great job and you matched the color perfectly.

We have an old antique Kitchen Hoosier that is very similar made with Oak that I haven’t restored yet. It has the original flour bin and sifter in it, the steel pull out porcelained counter top, and the frosted glass pattern is identical to yours. Nice job of matching the new to old.

Awesome old rustic looking cabinet. I like those metal hinges and locks.

Well done. Great match up. I have base of Hoosier cabinet I am using as a work bench. Should attempt to make the top. But then I would need to make a work bench. We have an original Hoosier cabinet we’ve been using as furniture for the last 40 years. They are very functional.
