Antique Writing Table Makeover

Antique Writing Table and Chair Set from Denise on a Whim
I must be one of the luckiest girls around!
My friends always bring me such fun stuff to work on,
like this sweet, little writing table.
Here's the table before, on the left.

This is such a pretty piece of furniture.

I painted the body with Homeplate from American Paint Company
then used a damp rag to distress it.

On the sides and front, as well as on the slide-out,
I used American Paint Company's Treasure Box,
one of my favorites.

After filling in a few holes on the top,
most likely where some cubbies had sat originally,
I used CeCe Caldwell's Beckley Coal.

I paired it with a chair I had picked up recently at a garage sale.
The same sale I grabbed a small bookcase from.

The chair got the same paint colors as the table
for a perfect little set!
