Shiny AND antique

First project built using plans from Ana White.  Loved completing it.  Take the time to sand and prep for finish.  Makes it sooo much better.

My glossy finish adds a lot of luster to the project.  I trimmed the inside edges of the 2x4 peices on the outside trim to make a smooth surface.
