Colorful, Farmhouse Vintage Coffee Bar

I inherited this china cabinet that used to belong to my great-grandmother. The color was a bit orangey for my taste, and the finish had seen better days.
I decided to liven the cabinet up with a splash of color and repurpose it from a china cabinet to a coffee bar. We're a bit coffee addicted, so it gets much more use this way. :)
The paint is Annie Sloan in Aubusson Blue with a clear wax. The hutch that came with the cabinet didn't fit very well in my tiny kitchen (because of light switch placement, etc) so I found this fabulous farmhouse vintage style shelf to hang above as extra storage.
