You would not have believed the state of this thing when I got it. too many coats of paint, some bad wood. Stripping it alone took a week. When working with it I really fell in love with the design of this sort of kitchen addition. If I had room, it would be in my house now.
I did change the upper doors, inserting glass, which makes it a much more useful in a modern kitchen. The spatter pain technique brings a very cool thing into your everyday life.
