Damask nightstand

So, I know I talked about having a unique coffee table ready on Friday but things have gone unexpectedly south on that project. I have been debating if I should just use the legs of the coffee table and turn it into an upholstered bench seat. The glass in the table is gone and my plan to replace it with some plywood just isn't working

I did, however, finish another kind of fun end table or nightstand. Argh...... I forgot to take before pictures of it again. It was a dark cherry stain. I refinished it using my new favorite color, duck egg blue, In Annie Sloan Chalk paint. I love this paint! It requires no primer or sanding and sticks to any surface. Seriously worth the money. It also sands smooth as a baby bum and distresses easily.

I covered it in a clear wax, then a dark wax and a clear wax again. The top is also covered in polyurethane for extra protection.
