Another recent custom job for a local client. Painted my favorite red (Benjamin Moore AF-290), lightly distressed and sealed with polyurethane. The solid top was sanded and stained a dark walnut color. Original hardware was reused per the customer's request.
I don't tire of the messy process of sanding wood, prepping, painting, sealing, etc. There's something redeeming about stripping away an ugly layer of stain to reveal the raw beauty of a natural product. Take a look:
