This 24 door was just too cute to pass up! When found it was chocalate brown and still had its original harware attached. I added the shelf and legs and attached the box at the botton for stability, painted and then distressed the paint with glaze.
It is a little difficult to see in the picture but the windows have been frosted from the back side which allows them to be written on with a dry erase marker. Here it is used as a wine glass holder and serving table.
Here is a little better view of the frosted glass.
This piece would also work great as an entry table with the rake to hold keys, the windows for messages  and a place to set your cell phone, wallet, hat, etc. The box below could hold mail or suncreen and bug spray or scarves and mittens for the winter.

Hey Diane, I think you’ll have a lot of people looking for rakes now. That is such a great idea for holding wine glasses and an overall beautiful project.
