The drawers have damage and the previous owner had made some repairs that I was impressed with. The top was in great shape as well, but didn’t quite match the stain of the rest because it is a veneer with a different grain.

Two reasons (1) it’s kinda like therapy (2) ain’t nobody gonna have one like it – tee hee. When I spied this little box at the thrift store, I saw the potential had to became a DIY charging station. Stay with me now.
It’s nothing more than a pine box, but there is potential right there. The features that I like: the size, the drawer, and the overall design with open top. The box was missing
Who’s up for a furniture makeover? You may be saying to yourself…nah…it’s too much work. After what I show you today, you may change your mind. Earlier this week, I showed you this chest of drawers and I would like to use it to show you how to wet distress.
Okay, now you’re saying I’m off my rocker, right? Not too long ago, I showed you how to distress with petroleum jelly. If that isn’t simple enough, then you’ll love this method.
