Old Sewing Table and Christmas Time

I got this sewing table for free So I took out the sewing machine and braced the part that opened and left the hidden storage in the table top to the left. here is how it started...
I started out mixing some Country Chic paint in cheesecake and Annie Sloan french linen to give it a cool off white color since my bead board in my room is white. I love the white on white but you always want to do different shades of white to give it more texture. After that I used vaseline in random places so when I distressed the piece it would be kinda chippy.
After that I used Miss Mustard Seed's hemp oil for a top coat and painted the handles in liquid gold leaf and used antiquing wax over them to darken them some.
For the Christmas decorations, I used a infinity scarf I crochet for a tree skirt, part of a burlap coffee sack on top of the table, the chalkboard I made from a old cabinet door, the mini Eiffel tower came from a yard sale as did the book, and the presents are the light boxes wrapped in Kraft paper with lace trim and bakers twine and a 1950s England stamp!
Underneath the table I added a old little picnic basket from a thrift store, and my $10 dollar dough bowl( huge score!) and one little white deer from a yard sale and some pine tree clipping!
Every ornament on the tree is either vintage or handmade by me!
