This chest had been very well loved in the past. It needed some glue and screws and a little wood filler here and there. Somewhere along the way someone had taken the veneer off the top and applied a very bad stain job to the wood underneath. I striped the top, but couldn't sand out all the glue marks. So I used Java Gel to cover it and sanded down to the lighter color wood in some places for a rustic look to match the rest of the chest. It had some gouges and dings that I didn't fill in because I liked that it fit in with the weathered look.
I painted it in equal parts Graphite, Coco, and Paris Grey then gave it a wash with straight Coco, distressed, and sealed with clear wax. This piece would look great in a foyer, rustic bedroom or nursery, dining room... anywhere really. I love the size and shape of it because it makes it so versatile!
