I did some heavy sanding on it, but left the original paint because I liked the soft blue color. Once I had sanded it I stained it with mahogany stain.
Don't puppys have toys to chew on?
Once I was finished I added some of my favorite things to the top drawer, some old books, marbles and some dried flowers etc. I love old books and the cover on them are so beautiful that they deserve to be shown off. The little container holding the marbles was my Great-Grandmothers tooth pick holder.
I love the color and the distressing, I think it gives the piece alot of character.
