The BIG Green Nightmare!

Found this little beauty at the flea market. It was in rough shape but it had a great shape.....beautiful lines and carvings. The olive green paint job with a streaky stain wiped haphazardly over it was in need of a serious make over.

Some of the lower drawers were missing trim. I yanked off the remaining trim only to find the missing trim in one of the drawers minutes later....ugh! Not happy and big lesson learned! I went ahead and filled the gaps left by the yanked off trim with Quik Wood, love this stuff, and sanded it smooth.

Sanded, primed and painted in fresh, light colors....
I decided to paint up a chair to go with it but did not feel like draggin it our for a photo op.
 

                        What a difference paint can make.

Wow!!! This is amazing. You did a beautiful job. I am having a difficult time in knowing how to fix wooden filigree work when there is a piece missing. Any suggestions?
