My wife decided that she wanted a dedicated place to store her broom, mop and other cleaning supplies near the kitchen. This area was formerly a utility room and there just happened to be a receptacle on the wall very near the corner (right beside the Dust Buster on the left). Therefore I designed this with a hole over the receptacle so I could plug in the charger. The bottom of the cabinet is made with plastic pegboard so it stays ventilated and dry. I painted the cabinet with yellow flat paint, applied paste wax lightly around the areas I wanted to look worn, strategically applied some crackle and then painted a final coat of red. Once it was completely dry and the crackle medium had done its work, I sanded the areas where wear would have likely occurred naturally to expose raw wood and the yellow undercoat. I then wiped it down with an umber paint thinner mix (wash) to age it and stain the raw areas. It then got a final coat of semi-gloss polyurethane. She was very happy.
