|Before: Queen Anne style side table|
It still had the original tag tucked inside the drawer, and it was actually called a lamp table. It was made by Imperial in Grand Rapids, and sold by The Rike Kumler Company in Dayton, Ohio.

I used wood glue to re-adhere the loose veneer. Sanding was required on the interior guides for the tray to loosen it up enough to slide open and closed.

|Apply shellac to prevent bleed through.|
AfterI choose Linen White Chalked Paint by Rustoleum for the table to give it a fresh and clean look. It will work beautifully as a side table in a living room, but it will also function perfectly as a night stand.

The tray above the drawer now slides open easily.

I painted the hardware in Paris Grey for contrast and extra elegance. I used sandpaper to apply distressing around the edges and details. The scalloped trim on this piece is especially beautiful.
