This is one of my favorite project so far........
I found this little jewel at a thrift store and at first didn't really know what it was. Now and based on the contents found in the top drawer (an a Google search) I am about 90% sure that it is (or was) a sewing box. I love the shape, the detail of the wood, and the legs.
I didn't love the drawer pulls.
I started by sanding down all surfaces to remove the varnish but not to the bare wood. I knew I wanted to paint it so sanding could be minimal (plus I hate sanding).
I used left over sample paint from my stairway wall project. I loved the color (but not on my wall) so this way I got the chance to use it on something that could live in my home (just not on the wall). To tone down the green I brushed on and then wiped off an antique stain. Sorry....got carried away and forgot to take photographs of this step but here are a few pre-hardware pics. The color is off a bit in these photographs but it really is a light shade of green.
I had a hard time finding 2" on-center knobs that I liked but finally after much searching I found these at MyKnobs.com
They came in about 4 days and fit perfectly:
An here is the finished sewing box accent table in its new home (for now LOL).
