Isn't she purdy?
She is not without faults...
This is nothing some time, patience and wood filler can't handle.
Here you see all the spaces filled in and I did a light sanding over the whole body.
I primed and painted the cabinet in a nice white. I cut some chicken wire to fit the "window". I cut some small trim pieces I had to cover the staples and the sharp edges of the wire.
I even painted the inside and shelves. I left the back for something different.
I went with a rustic back using pallet wood. I sat on how to attach the wood to the back for a bit. I didn't want to really put holes in the back of the cabinet and it would not be an easy task without a nail gun anyhow. What is a girl to do? Hot glue gun of course! It worked!
Here is a close up of some of the distressing.
