I've had this piece for ages. So long, in fact, that I almost couldn't find the 'before' picture. It is a find from the North Fulton Community Center Thrift Store. If you live in Atlanta, this place is worth the trip. It is in the Roswell/Alpharetta area and although their furniture selection is not huge, they always seems to have some really good pieces to choose from. I often leave there with two huge pieces wedged in the back of my SUV.
I painted it in ASCP Old White. Once again, I wished I had primed it first… will I ever learn?? It just takes a lot of Old White to cover darker woods. But I'm thrilled with the outcome so I guess it was worth all that paint!
The hardware is mixed. The handles are heavy iron. The pulls on the cabinet doors are tear drops, and the glass knobs were once pewter at the base… I really really wanted to do glass on these tiny drawers (you know when you get your heart set on something, and you can't see past it?!) but couldn't find any glass that wasn't brass or silver on the base. So, I painted them with Oil Rubbed Bronze spray (I sprayed it into a cup and used a piantbrush to paint them).
I am LOVING it in my dining room but might get the nerve up to sell it one of these days!
thanks for coming by!
