Tidbit Tuesday (transforming furniture)

There's no better furniture to experiment on than the free kind. When we purchased our home we were blessed with a variety of pieces of furniture left behind by the previous owners. One of the pieces was a small rolling cabinet. I decided to try my hand at a rustic finish a.k.a. crackle finish.

I'm thrilled with the way it turned out! It really adds interest to the room. 

I left the inside and feet the solid color. It works really well as a printing cart/station.  Having a wireless printer is handy because the printer doesn't have to be on the same desk as your computer.

Of course changing the hardware is a quick fix. Don't you love these fun squirrel knobs?

This was the first time I've done a finish like this and I would say it's pretty much fool proof. So if you're looking for a fun way to update a piece of furniture without worrying about being perfect than this technique is for you.
