I've lightly tattered the cabinet, and sanded the top to smooth it out. Besides that, It has a coat of Miss Mustard Seed's wax.
This piece has wonderful alligatoring of the original varnish in parts. Because of this, I may add antiquing wax to it later.
This is the before picture. It had a very dark finish.
These pictures were taken on our trip to Paris a few years back. They were taken at the Rue Cler Market. I thought they were just to pretty not to use somewhere. The kitchen seemed like the perfect place.
This is the antique cart that I usually have in this spot. I added this so you can compare the wood to the pop of blue from the French Enamel. Some people are afraid to use color in their home. I'm tempted now to add a splash of color to this spot permantly.
If you are interested in this piece, stop by the shop this weekend and see it in person!
