I found this discarded piece that could have once been a vanity or desk or even a front hall table.
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure or in this case another woman’s treasure
I loved how it was open on the sides and had one drawer in the centre. The way the finish was crackly I figured it was 50-60 years old.
The original plan was to sand and stain the top and chalk paint the rest. Once I started I quickly realized the wood veneer was in need of more work than the sanding would do.
I decided then to use ASCP Graphite on the top and around a few of the edges and the rest was done in Aubusson Blue. I still wanted it to have and aged look to it so I distressed a little around the edges for some definition and then out came the dark wax.
It has since become a welcome piece in someone’s bedroom.
A perfect place for the tv.
