This Modern Majestic Masterpiece was found at a garage sale where the owner practically wanted to pay me to take it. I wasn't about to leave this beauty behind, so I loaded her up and brought her home. The wood was dull and dry, and it had a wonderful musty smell as if it had been sitting in someone's basement for many years. She was screaming to bring her beauty back in high Mid Century Modern style and that's just what she got! 

I cleaned and aired it out good, sanded, and primed it. I painted the body and legs in General Finishes Sea Gull Gray. I then stained the drawer fronts in General Finishes Java Gel stain, and decided on a geometric pattern in General Finishes Persian Blue Milk Paint. The piece was then finished off with three coats of General Finishes High Performance Top Coat in Flat.
