I purchased this from an amazing garage sale. Thanks Pam F. It is very primitive and a bit out of my comfort zone. I purchased Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Arles to add some much needed color. I also had a lovely random chair to add so I painted one to match. This stable was not super sturdy and missing a drawer. Instead of fashioning something, I decided to play up the missing part.
The top of the table was rough too. I sanded the old stains and spots off and placed a nice dark stain on the top followed by a whip-off poly. Just before I stained it, I flipped it over and reinforced the planks on the top and the legs. It is a nice sturdy work space now.
Here is the finished product:
I just love the way Annie Sloan paint distresses and ages. Notice that I took decorative parts that had fallen off and adhered them to the empty drawer space. This would be a sweet space to hang a kitchen towel.
