So this is a pretty dramatic transformation. First, I filled in and sanded out that silly floral carving that was doing the piece no favors. Next I added the pine top, with trim. I sanded and painted the case in a custom chalk paint with Behr's Crisp Ginger Ale (one of my new favorite colors). I very lightly sanded the corners and then finished with a wet wax technique that's subtle but gives it just a touch of extra patina and a nice velvety finish. I painted the inside in a lovely creamy white that compliments the greeny-yellow perfectly. It was a wrench to let it go because I really wanted to keep it for myself, but I just have no spot for it.
