I had a lot of fun with this piece! Its an antique and had some dark stain and thick gloss lacquer over it hiding the true beauty of the original knotty pine. I sanded it down to the original wood and used a pumpkin pine stain and satin finish. There is a small drawer, which got an antiqued gold bamboo handle. For the base, I wanted to challenge myself with authentic materials so used the powder-form Old Fashioned Milk Paint in Pitch Black. The distressing on the piece brings out the age, despite the refresh and 4 coats of wax buffed in by hand gives a smooth soft finish.
Check out the before (mostly ‘before’, this was after a little sanding):
