An Appetite for Anaglypta!

This is a great end table for any room, 
it has a great amount of storage for such a small piece!

I almost always forget to take a proper before pic!  
I think you get the idea : )

The veneer on this piece was in rough shape,  
I removed the top and the bottom front, luckily it came off easily.
Now...  time to prime (I always use Zinsser Bin for glossy surfaces).

Priming done... time for paint, 
I am using a bright white with a hint of blue, 2 coats.

I needed to use something in place of the veneer so I decided to 
use embossed wallpaper (Anaglypta) to make this a really unique piece. 
One coat of paint, (I don't wait until the wallpaper is dry 
 and make sure you get it in all the nooks and crannies) 
then a layer of glazing to protect it.

I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the hardware, 
I decided to spray paint them white and distress them, 
I'm happy with the results!

  5. At what point did you sand the edges to distress it? What grit sandpaper did you use? Did you do it by hand or did you use a palm/orbital sander? Did you put gloss on it after you sanded the edges? If so, what kind of gloss and how many coats?
