So along the lines of redecorating, I made this side table, originally to hold our 8-track and turntable, but then we found something better for that so this became the hubby's side table.  This started out as a very 70's side table, wood grain and kind of blah.  I spray painted it green and then sanded that down, added dark wax and then light wax.  The top I left the way it was, so that when I finish my side table they will somewhat match, though they'll be different colors.

lol did I read that right? 8 track?  Cheesy

The table turned out nice!  The wax gives the wood a nice aged look...love the green color...and the piece is functional...a nice drawer!

Yep, 8-track, we got it with our turntable for $5 at a church sale!  The drawer is great, it's super deep too!

I love the colour on this, it's beautiful!

Finally back from hiatus, but being a busy-bee with studies.

 Grin  I love this!  I'm so totally in my retro phase of my life. I think it's all the detail done on a lot of furniture from that period.  Very well done!
