Spice Drawer Apothecary Cabinet Makeover

Just wanted to share a spice drawer cabinet that I madeover this week.
I thought it would be fun to change it up a bit and do two colors.

I had to clean the piece first. It had a fair amount of kitchen grease on it.
Then I sanded it, to prepare it for paint.

The drawers got painted seafoam green.
The color reminds me of jadeite.

The rest of the cabinet got painted white and lightly distressed.

I glued a knob onto the bottom middle section to make it match the other drawers.
It didn't have one when I started.
This area isn't actually a drawer, it is an open space.
I'm not sure why it was made this way and have been trying to think of a clever use for the opening,
but I haven't come up with anything great yet.
Maybe teabags?
 Maybe taller spice bottles or salt & pepper grinders?

What would you do with the open space on the bottom shelf?
I'm stumped.
Thanks for stopping by to peak at my spice drawer makeover
and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
'til next time,
