Antique White bookcase/cabinet

i've just finished this cabinet for a client. it got a light shabby this morning,
now it's all set to go off to it's new home.
it never ceases to amaze me what a few coats of paint can do to a piece of furniture.
wanna see how it slowly transforms coat by coat?
ok then!
here's the before....
after one coat of Zinsser- no before sanding needed either!
after 2 coats....
now onto the Antique White USA- 1st coat....
and the last coat. via instagram!
and here are a few more finished photos
so there you have it. so pleased it's finished. it's taken me all week to complete!

i'm doing a stall at the Ferny Grove Markets tomorrow morning. so off to price things and pack the car for a 4:50am start!
