Walking around my local thrift store, the amazing wood detail on this bureau caught my eye and I was instantly smitten by its gorgeousness. I ran over, snatched it up and was thrilled it fit in my cart. Some might have given up their first-born for it, but the price was a mere 10 bucks. Yes, please.
The awkward feeling of eyes coveting what is in your cart while perusing the rest of the store is the best!
Minwax Stainable Wood Filler for the job. The makeover was at a standstill for awhile because I kept debating whether to paint the panels or the trim. In the end, the trim won out. I decided paint might ruin the look of the amazing herringbone; which was in perfect condition.
Scotch Blue Edge Lock Tape. I like this better than the normal blue tape because the sticky side is not as texturized and is more like clear tape and less like duct tape.
I love the two-tone look of the wood and yellow trim.
What do you think? Are you liking beautiful, wood grain mixed with a pop of color?
