Very well done. Classy, stylish, victorian, etc. I love that you palatized the rear face of the case with color. Too many people paint everything white and that visually opaques the peice and doesn’t allow for any visual definition. You chose a nice color to augment the white of the shelving and encasements. Just remember to keep your shelves from getting cluttered!Wise choice in allowing the subtle shade of antiquing in and around the reliefs, it is an attractive part of the peice and makes it very alluring. Nice. Have you thought about bringing more of the antiquing into the cavities of the cabinet doors, between the depression of the tongue on the raised panel and the style/rail areas? Or does the picture just not pick it up?

thanks guys , yes i did everything except the paint , they had thier painter come in and spray it in place then a another faux expert did the glazing or antiquing as you call it . as i recall its about 17 ft. wide and 12 ft high . i built the whole thing in my shop which was a challenge as i had to build it laying down because it was too tall to stand up in my shop i only have 10 ft. ceiling. yes todd you are right the glazing dosent show up on the doors ive taken many photos and it just dosent show up in any of them
