I decided to coordinate it with the lighter pieces in my living room by painting the body Old White and waxing it with clear wax, conditioning and re-staining the top, and applying a coat of poly (to the top only).
I like how it turned out. I did use quite a bit of paint on it though. Two coats just barely covered the old stain. I might have gone with a third coat if I was going to sell it but since its for my house, I'm ok with it not being completely perfect. :)
It's also a little small for under this big mirror, but I like having something there. I would love to have a small decorative fireplace mantel that fit this spot. It's very narrow but it would be a great spot for one.
I got the little advertising box many years ago at an auction. It's just a beat-up little box but I love the picture.
I'm linking up at Potpourri Friday, Show and Tell Friday, Feathered Nest Friday and Furniture Friday. Have an awesome weekend!
