Shabby Chic Side Table

by Kris Haberman
Started out dark and drab.
There is actually a lot of detail on this piece you can't see in its original form.
Lots of scratches and dings on the top.
I chose to paint it in General Finishes Lamp Black on top and AS Old Ochre on bottom.
Bottom was distressed a lot and clear waxed.
The dark wood undertones looks great peeking through the Old Ochre.
Love the base of this piece.

    I love how you brought out the beautiful details on this piece. It was so dark at first those details were lost. You did a great job. It looks gorgeous now.

    You did an excellent job. This falls in the category "one of the prettiest pieces" for me. Be sure to post other pieces you do:)
