Painted Storage Cabinet

It was there everytime I walked in the house.  Begging me to paint it.  Literally begging.  It was a gift to me from my sister in law, and it fits perfectly in our foyer to hold our book bags, briefcases, hats, scarves, gloves etc.  

But it was ugly.  So so so U.G.L.Y.
 No.  It is not even wood.  But it is a wonderful size for my needs... 
So I wiped it down... and got to painting!  I, of course, used my Coastal Colors paint...
The colors I used were driftwood for the base, seaspray for the white panels, Nantucket for the Seahorses and Mermaid's Tale to shade the seahorses.  I did very light distressing (I didn't want too much of the original UGLY to come through)  and sealed with Liquid Steel as we use this a lot and I want to minimize scratches... Here it is...

 It's amazing what this beautiful paint can do for a piece - now I LOVE IT!!!!
