Simple chimney cabinet I made to donate to a charity silent auction event. Made of pine and finished with black stain then a sparse coat of barn red paint to give it a distressed look. First time I’ve made a raised panel door on the table saw. I used a jig I found at Cabinet dimensions are 46”H x 15”W x 11”D.

I love that color. You said Black stain? Is this a particular kind or something you mixed up? Great job

Kaleb – The black stain is ‘Kona’ by Rustoleum which is black or very nearly black. The red paint is ‘Front Door Red’ by Valspar. I stained the entire piece with Kona then applied the red paint very sparingly and sanded some off here and there. That’s the beauty of a distressed look, you can’t screw it up.

By the way I made the hinges and screws look old by soaking them in apple cider vinegar overnight. Takes the zinc plating right off.
