Sometimes holding onto a project for a really long time pays off! Well, unless you happen to be married to me. Then it just becomes another piece of furniture in a crowded chaotic garage.
Last summer, yes it was that long ago, I found this bad boy.
It was a craigslist find and i fell in love with the top! I know, it is not for everyone. I thought that it would make an awesome piece to try a little chalk paint on. I was looking the piece over and discovered that the tray was actually plastic and cracked:( . I bought it anyway hoping to replace it with some bead board or maybe some cool pressed tin.
The piece sat in my garage for at least 9 months. I looked at pressed tin and it was at least $25 for a sheet and bead board just seemed to plain. This piece needed a little more pizazz and sparkle. After my last rehab, I decided to go for a mirrored top. I painted the piece off white, with a little distressing and finished it off with a coat of clear wax.
Here is how it turned out......
I love the french lines and the mirror gives it a little modern edge. Plus, it goes great with my latest chair make-over. Super cute don't ya think!
