This old side table held charm in its turned legs and beaded drawers, but layers of (yuck) beige-pink paint and missing bead trim made it shabby - not chic. One drawer wouldn't close - but the worst problem was the broken table top split off at the back.
I removed the top and replaced it, and because I saveeverything, I had some old wood beading that had come off of another relic. It was close enough in size and shape to please the client, and voila! Here it is with a distressed black finish, satin topcoat. The sticking drawer required only glue and an overnight clamp with minor sanding.
