Record Cabinet Redo

Driving home from our Michigan road trip I was able to score this vintage record cabinet at a great price
 I  wasn't even sure what the piece was. I considered a buffet  or something for vinyl record storage. After asking around, I was told it was indeed a record cabinet. I think it's a real special piece. 

 Using the Chalk Country Paint line, I created a custom color with Santa's Coal and Pure Pewter. Afterwards, I dry brushed the top with a mixture of Teal Ocean and Pure Pewter to create a slightly more slate looking teal, next I stencilled and then did a few coats of wax.

 Dark colors ...greys , black and browns are not colors I am drawn to for myself personally and so I thought I needed to challenge myself with this color choice.
 Dry brushed rosettes and detail swith Steel Gray and Teal.
 I love the crackle of the wood in this photo.

It has a very vintage, dare I say, Gothic feel to it. I have been told Old Charleston and Mystical New Orleans. Do do do do ****

This piece is available for sale at  $275.00 .This is a great gift for a vinyl collector. Dimensions 30.75" H x 18"W x 36" L Sold 

Thanks for taking time to see what I've been creating.
