Kitchen Pantry Doors Mural

My daughter wanted her Pantry doors spruced-up. She gave me an idea and this is the result. These doors can be seen from the family room and were screaming for some personality.
This is the area called the Breakfast nook was BORING.
Prepped. The cabinets are wood, not laminate. So it was easy to paint
I tapped off the framing,
Painted the back ground of each pane. I wish the pics showed the colors better. The back ground color is a deep plum color.
Chalked in the designs and then started painting with leftover latex wall paint.
Sealed the entire doors with water based Polyurethane, many coats. outlined with black permanent marker.
Here it is.
I used a Sharpie Permanent marker to outline.

Turned out well. The mural brightens up the area. I also painted the table top.

    Would love to have the cabinet space! How deep are they? Are they built-ins or added later and/or where did you get them, if added? Need ideas for storage and/or shelving for re-purposed utility room.

    Thanks. Great job!! Viewed 7/31/18.

    Where did you get the idea for the pictures or did you just draw them yourself?
