Adding a Little Storage to the Craft Room

So I'm home from work for a couple snow days so I decided why not finish my craft storage project.  I only started it in November.  The craft room is the original log cabin part of the house to read more about that go here.  All I had in there for storage was a cute little cabinet and a bunch of suitcases.  I had been thinking of building something and then I found something at the Restore that would work it just needed a face lift.   

It was solid and I liked the crown molding and the big drawers.  I added a shelf and a new back. My husband kept asking me how much did you pay for that?  He didn't see my vision for it. 

I used the can of Paris Grey ASCP that I had purchased for my kitchen island.  Then it sat for 2 months.  I just wasn't happy with all gray.  It actually looks like a lavender gray in this room.  

I decided to add a touch of Old White to the details.  I love it now, it gave it a little interest. 

I sprayed the pulls and knobs oil rubbed bronze.  I also sprayed some into the cap and used a small brush to paint the brass parts on the glass.  So much better. 

I kept the little white cabinet and just moved her over to the corner.

For this room I try to embrace the cabin feel.  I have been painting all the woodwork white in the rest of the house but in here I love the rustic wood walls and floor.  It is a cabin after all.
