A wardrobe cabinet i did for myself. I wasn’t sure what kind of finish i was going to use & decided to bookmatch all the panels. The joinery is a mix of sliding dovetails, mortise & tenon, cope & stick, and the shelves are pocket holed to the dovetailed blades. There is a sketchup doc if anyone is interested just pm me. The finish is a bayberry green milk paint(base) with a crackled white cream milk paint on the top. It took me a few sides to really get the hang of this finish. The front frame is the last side i did & probably turned out the best of the bunch. The doors were the 2nd side i did & didn’t turn out as well as i’d of liked.

Milk paint? I thought that went away a hundred years ago!

It’s still fairly popular amongst the shabby chic crowd. Shaker reproductions still use it as well.

Looks cool. Like the shabby chic look. Great design, build and joinery. Well done!
