Antique Sideboard With Milkpaint and Chicken Wire

I was so lucky to revice this beautyfull piece of furniture, for FREE! I had it standing in our dining room for a couple of weeks before I found the idea (and courage!) of what to make of it.
This is the biggest makeover I have ever made! When I got it, it had been making its purpose as a bathroom furniture, was dark brown and had a big white marble top with a whole for a sink in it.
We built a new top, painted it with MMS milkpaint in grain sack and put in chicken wire on the doors.
I did not do anything with the inside, simply because I love the original "old-ness" of the wood. I now have the old cottage-feel that I was going for:)
Heres the "before" picture. I used an old window to cover up the hole where the sink used to be.
