Primitive Chimney Cabinet

A real challenge for me... was this chimney cabinet.
I never even knew what a chimney cabinet was until I was brought this piece by a great client.
Before they delivered it, I did a lot of research.
Pinterest, Google

I got a lot of inspiration. Thankfully!!

(Sources: Google)

The cabinet, really needed help. It was a bit awkwardly constructed, it really needed cosmetic work. 

I filled a ton of nail holes, cleaned it.... primed, painted..

Liz (my client) purchased a GREAT paint color for it.

She wasn't sure about, but as soon as I started to paint with the color it was GREAT! 
(excellent coverage)

The paint color totally transformed the piece. What was an awkward cabinet..

 Hardware that was once coated in at least 3 paint colors.

I took advantage of a beautiful day... to take pictures outside.

The the inside of the cabinet was kept the original color to accent the piece, just like the inspiration picture above.
