This is a wine cabinet and dish hutch.It is Maple case with federal blue base coat and red pepper top coat.Using milk paint from general finishes.The red pepper was thinned down like ink and just use long brush strokes and when it dried the federal blue comes alive.Also took ice pick and punched holes all around top and sides to look like worm holes plus beat it up with a chain to really distress it. Still have to make doors for center and get glass,my glass company shut the doors so i have to shop for another source
This is a new customer that was referred from a customer of mine.
