Antique Bookcase

So I completely forgot about this wee bookcase..
I was clearing out my furniture shed yesterday when I came across this...
It dont think its a beautiful piece but I thought it could be put to use..
This little mahogany bookcase has exceeded my expectations...
I forgot to take a before pic but heres something similar...


And Now...


I used my own mix of chalkpaint..
I only painted two coats..
First coat I used the hair dryer to dry :/
Before the second coat was completely dry I used baby wipes to wipe off and distress..
I think it worked a treat..

It was finished in about 4 hours lol
