First of all I had sanded it and filled the gouges and scratches with putty. When dry I've applied two coats of Milk Paint in Seagull Gray. Sealed it with Flat out Flat.
I decided the piece needed some more color to go along with plain gray and picked this cute wrapping paper with triangles. I laid the wrapping paper over each panel inside to get an idea of what size to cut it down to.
Once I cut it out, I put a coat of decoupage glue on the wood panel, laid the paper on top and gave the top a few coats of Flat out Flat to protect it. I put the decoupage glue along the edges as well and pressed the paper under the top as I went.
As final I've replaced the legs to give it some lightness. Pulls were changed as well to fit in better for girls room.
