I had an exciting thrift shopping day yesterday!! I picked up this William and Mary Style China Cabinet.
It's in great shape - almost too good to paint - I'd like to hit it with some stain and wax it with AS clear wax and see if it sells without painting. Two questions.......There are two small areas with the veneer chipped off. I've used wood filler in the past it does not take stain - will plastic wood stain to a nice match? They sell it in colors I could get dark walnut. Next question.....If I decide to paint it with Annie Sloan chalk paint after waxing it will I need to prep it? Or, instead of wax I could probably just use the dark Old English. Opinions?
