Little Duck Egg Cupboard

Found this unremarkable little cupboard at the local thrift store.  The best thing about it was the old duck painting that was used for the back panel.

I painted it (appropriately enough) with AS Duck Egg paint, distressed it heavily with 60 grit sandpaper, and added a brass handle that came off some other piece.  I wanted the ducks and wood to show on the inside, so I applied Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane to seal it.

It has a nice look now. . . would be very pretty with some greens hanging on the front for Christmas or  could be laid flat and used to hold silverware or crafting supplies . . .
