Shabby chic isn't usually my MO, however when I spotted this abandoned piece I knew i had to save it. The nice carved legs and applied wood details made it a natural for distressing. The interior has great functionality, even in today's age!

In great shape but had some sort of cutout embellishment added and was faded. Work Done: Strip, Clean, Sand, some repair work, Paint light gray with distressed wax finish.
