So ------ still need to find some handles for the drawers and paint the inside of the legs lol (not sure how I have forgotten to do that....

That looks awesome, Jill!! Did you sand the whole thing first to remove the varnish! I say distress, too :)
I've been wanting to repaint our kitchen cabinets, but The thought of sanding is daunting! Lol...

this looks great! I think distressed was the way to go too! What kind of knobs/handles are you using? Something antique?

I used liquid sand and then went over a few areas with the sandpaper again. Then I painted like three coats (four over the stained areas) and then roughed up the edges and used my glaze I bought at Lowes.... easy peasy.... just gotta get some pulls and i think it might look pretty decent.

I say distress it...two reasons, 1. it will look cute :) 2. Since it is painted it is going to start to "distress" itself anyway, in time and with use...so you might as well just go with it!

What a huge difference!
[sounds so like me to forget the obvious :)]
Off-white goes with everything so a thumbs up for the handles!

distressed is always good(but.. ultimately, depending on where you are displaying it)..that is such an awesome difference...looks nice
