Upcycled old court cupboard

This was a very old dark stained court cupboard, I find these all the time at auctions and thrift shops as people seem put off by the old fashioned stain, finish. I however can see past that and know GF Milk paint can transform the darkest of pieces. I sanded the top natural which took forever, it smelt like tobacco in the stain, awful, then it was given a light sand/clean and GF Seagull Grey used on the frame, absolutely love how this came up and it is now loved and used again in my cousins house. This was destined to be unloved and is now revitalised and in daily use
