Shabby Chic China Cabinet-or updated for Linens!

Another pretty lady. This cabinet could be used for dishes, linens or towels.  I use mine as a display case and the drawer hides my yarn!
This is what she looked like when we brought her home.  I usually knock out the side panels and make two doors for easier access.  This cabinet's door is unusual as it is 20 1/4 inches wide; no need to alter.

The door inlay is a simple geometric design. I removed part of it as it was cracked and heavily damaged. I love the simplicity.

Softly distressed drawer detailing

I sanded the top back to the original walnut finish and stained.
The cabinet is 61 inches tall, 15 1/2 inches deep and 36 inches wide.  The drawer is 6 inches deep.
