Today was the day she was reborn. I think I avoided this piece in the past because the glossy, flaking paint scared me. But with chalk paint, that is no longer a problem.
I sanded with a fine sand paper.
I love the wood applique details,
and the chippy paint that came through.
I used spray adhesive to line the drawers with 1912 Saturday Evening Post pages.
Chippy, shabby and sweet--ready for a new home.
