New Available Side Table



                                                                  BEFORE     

I knew this piece had great possibilities, heavy, sturdy and look at all the drawers, not to mention the 2 door cabinets, I considered removing the doors for baskets?  But pictured it painted with the wood cut outs adding a special look for the piece.   This piece could be used for a Side Table or Buffet?
  I
 I sanded the top and used Mini Wax Rosewood stain, then Mini Wax wipe-on-poly, which I love, so easy to use.  The bottom was painted with a creamy Beige and distressed with sanding paper and also a sanding block.  I did replace the original hardware, but not all the pieces.  I like the results and my supervisor kitty "Reno" does too!  It looks possibly a little French or Shabby Tuscany?

 I love the great pictures you blogging gals take in the home, all lovely and model home style.  I am jealous, but excuse by garage scene photo shots on most of my pictures!  I did paint one garage wall covering the drywall and tape with extra paint!  Only the light items can be taken outside or inside for photo's!   Where is that good looking strong guy when you need them??  I have looked right and left from the garage, no one in site when I am struggling! 
                    
Thank you for looking, now on to the next piece!

That really turned out pretty. Why do the cats always want to help? Mine always have paint on the tails! I sooooo relate to not having a place to photograph pieces! It's frustrating to have a piece that looks so good in real life and not be able to pimp it out to it's fullest.

Marilyn, I have so many ppl lining up for buffets finished just like this. Wish I could find more of them. Maybe I could just borrow yours? Great job!
