More kitchen updates

This is a little shelf that my brother-in- law made for me about 12 years ago for my little boy's nursery. I had painted it then in a denim blue and it held little teddy bears, cars, airplanes, etc. This is after a good coat of primer.
This is how it looked at Christmas. I painted it the same red as my chalkboard door that leads to the pantry. It was perfect for displaying some of our Christmas dishes.
Here are our cabinets after I painted them white. I kept them white for a year or so and loved them but decided I wanted to try to make them look 'old'. So I wiped them down with some antiquing glaze.

I really like how they turned out. The knobs were some that I bought at a discount store for only 1.00 each. Solid brass and very heavy. I sprayed them with the same 'rubbed bronze' paint that I painted the doorknob with.
Now to get the molding done....maybe soon.
