Summer Project!

Nothing to do with diabetes here, I just wanted to show the awesome cabinet I found on Craig's List and hope to be picking up tonight!  It'll be my summer project, and Jeff has already said 'you'll never finish it' oh but I will.  We desperately need the storage in our kitchen and there's a big, empty wall that needs something on it too.  Here it is, not lookin' too hot.  The red paint is actually glass in the cabinets. 
I'm very excited.  It needs a good re-furbishing...not sure what finish I want it in, any ideas?

I am thinking that I would strip the red paint and maybe put a cute fabric behind the glass. Oh the possibilities. Can't wait to see the finished product.

I clicked on your project from Miss Mustard Seed's website... it's adorable -- lots of possiblities!

Clean the red off the glass and do a faux etching? Are you looking to paint or stain? (or bit of both? Stain the countertop part and paint the rest perhaps. I'll be watching this project. I have a hoosier cabinet myself that I need to refurbish sitting in the garage. Can't wait to see what you do!

Thanks for the suggestions! I started on it and was delightfully surprised to find etched glass on the cabinet doors under that hideous red paint! See my post from yesterday for a quick pic!
