It’s hard to get the full picture of homeliness since I didn’t have the drawers in and I had already started sanding and priming.

It actually looks way better in this photo than real life.  Pretty sad state.

Primer, gray and turquoise with some stain were added before it was distressed.  I special ordered hardware.  Thanks to my Uncle Johnny who drilled the massive holes required for those suckers!

It’s been sitting pretty for over a month waiting for its hardware to arrive and be put on.
It’s hard to see from photos just how beautiful this piece turned out.  Many people who stop by my aunt’s egg shop have oooed and aaaawed over it.

  12. Lovely! Where do you get all of your hardware? It is so perfect for your distressed pieces. Does your hardware come as seen or do you work some magic on it?
