Distress or Not?

 Today I got the paint out and got busy. Both coats are on and are the last one is drying as I type. But I haven't decided on one thing. Should I distress the cabinet or not? I am also playing with the idea of adding a pop of color in the back of each compartment.

What do you think?

Then its adding the hooks, finding some cute baskets for the top shelf, and hauling it inside.

a pop of color would be fun - you could even find some funky wallpaper for the back of the compartments or something...

Distress--maybe, but not too much. Add color--I don't think so. That way you don't have to repaint if you change your colors. It looks great the way it is, and will fit great in your house. However, don't be the one hauling it inside. Baby Bot doesn't need to arrive just yet. Love you lots!

I agree with your mom on the color. I wouldn't paint color but you could try some contact paper or something inside. I like the black. I am a fan of distressed with furniture like that. Espeically with kids...then if they scratch it it won't be as obvious. It looks beautiful. SO jealous. I am going to look more at that site this weekend. The chairs for summer sound splendid!

do you do the wood work or does your husband...
