It was in great shape structurally, but really needed a cosmetic overhaul. The finish on the top was worn pretty badly. I thought about refinishing it, but it was such a cute little piece, that I decided paint would make it a real charmer. I was thinking turquoise or blue (as I usually do) but decided to look through all my paints and came across a mustard yellow "oops" paint I bought a while back- perfect!
So I went to work, sanding, priming, and painting. I decided minimal distressing to show off its legs and details, and then antiqued it with a stain just to warm it up a bit. Once that was complete, I went through my knobs and found these adorable green knobs I had ordered from Anthropologie. They were exactly what it needed!
