This piece was looking sad sitting in a thrift store, but I couldn’t resist the cute, short tapered legs and it had potential for some great storage! I added shelves inside each cabinet (they used to hold some sort of vintage filing system) and a shelf across the bottom center. I painted the base in Snow White by General Finishes and sealed it in a semi gloss top coat by Wise Owl Paint. I sanded down the top to show off the natural wood and then sealed it with Lemon Verbena Furniture Salve also by Wise Owl Paint. To finish it off I added gold pulls from Target. I had so much fun trasforming this piece!
