refinishing antique furniture

We've been in our house 2.5 years now, so I'm starting to get the itch to redecorate.
This is my grandmother's china cabinet that I inherited when she passed away in 2009. I cherish it so much! My kitchen has white cabinetry and light granite countertops, so the dark wood did not really match the room.
It was alot of work. And it took me forever!
I was so happy with the finished product! I painted the whole thing with 2 coats of white, then I put a wood stain over it once it dried, then wiped that off for an "antique" look. It looks darker (more of a cream) in person.
Before and After :)
