The finish on this looks excellent. How did you manage such an authentic worn look? Also, how did you attach and finish the mesh inserts? We have no use for this piece right now, but it looks so good that I just want to go start making one straight away.....!

After construction
step 1 - stain the whole cabinet and wait for it to dry
step 2 - brush on Elmers school glue all over the project and wait for it to get tacky ( look on youtube for crackle paint effect)
step 3 - Lightly paint on color
Step 4 - dry the project with a blow dryer and watch it crackle
step 5 - I used a orbital sander and just went crazy hitting it all over ripping and peeling the top coat of paint.

I attached the mesh with a staple gun I think on the next one I am going to use stained glass instead of the mess though.
