Start to Finish…

image

Purchased at Goodwill for $35. 

image

I cleaned it and took out all the drawers.

image

Sanded down the top with an electric sander with some pretty gritty paper because the glossy stain was tough to get through.

image

Removed the hardware.

image

I stained the top with a walnut paste.  It’s so NICE!  I primed the rest and painted with Valspar’s delicate white.

image

Then I distressed with some gritty sand paper by hand.  And put the original hardware back on.  It was my first project and now I’m hooked!

On word for this...awesome! For your first project this turned out just beautiful. And what a bargain...my Goodwill never has stuff like this. I am beside you at Marian's linky party. This is great inspiration...I may have to hit my Goodwill a little more often! Following you now too.
