This Lil Cabinet became separated from its hutch top years ago. I found it looking lonely and disheveled. It’s wood was rough and stained and the antique glass was cracked. I decided to retain its rustic look. I lightly sanded the wood and then painted and distressed it. I sealed it with a light coat ofhomemade white wax. The top and interior had a plethora of unremovable stains. I had decided to seal them and then try to camouflage the stains with glaze....or something. Instead a lovely accident happened! When I sealed the raw stained wood with sanding sealer the old dyes, and tanins bled in a fabulous water color kind of way. A few more coats sealed the look. I replaced the door knob with a small wood owl knob that I painted and waxed. I decided to leave the cracked glass. It was stable, antique and beautiful.
