My computer is in a bit of transition right now. Just had to have it all backed up cause...well, I take too many pictures. So now I'm organizing my million photos while trying to track down the ones I set aside for specific blog posts. I did however find these before and after's that I finished recently for the Pannikin. They are there now and waiting for their forever home:)
Sorry the picture quality kind of stinks. The after shot was taken in the early evening...but seriously, isn't this the neatest waterfall nightstand? I love that it had the original gold and lucite hardware. It looks so much better in person. If only I had a space in my house for this.
I first attempted to refinish it and realized it wasn't a blonde wood veneer but a painted finish to look like blonde wood. So after a light sanding to get rid of the wear, it looked...well...not so good. So I painted it a pretty minty-ish, turquoise-y green. LOVE IT!!
This little square table had a beautiful inlayed lattice design that was under a dark stain and pretty worn out so you couldn't really make out the pattern. The legs are way too provincial for my taste and I almost replaced them but was talked out of it. So I decided it needed a contrasting color to give it some life. This piece took hours of sanding, varnishing and repainting, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.
