Beautiful side table, freshly refinished in white chalk paint. I gave this piece a crackled, weathered appearance (Elmer's glue technique!)...allowing the dark undertones to pop through. I applied an undercoat of cast iron black over the dark stained wood, topped with white chalk paint with a crackled finish. I applied a light finish in dark wax here and there...very subtly... then clear wax, giving it a warm, time worn appearance. I love the metal plates and rivets!
