Doesn't feel much like Spring here. In fact, it's supposed to snow tomorrow. Are you kidding me? Thought it was some cruel April Fools joke the weather guy decided to play....wishful thinking. Since it's so not Spring like here, I decided to paint this a bring on Spring, sunny, happy color.
|It was in nice shape except for a couple of minor veneer issues and a piece of molding torn off. I pulled the intact piece off and naturally saved it for some other future find..|
|There was also a buckling drawer issue that I didn't notice until I got it home. This was replaced w/ a new piece of plywood.|
I didn't prime because I planned to distress it quite a bit and didn't want the white primer to show through. Instead, I sanded it a little more heavily to give the paint something to grab on to. I sanded the original stain off the top and restained w/ Minwax dark walnut.
|Isn't the wood grain on this beautiful?|
