so, after much debating about what to do with it, and finally finding the time to have drop cloths all over the living room while painting, i have her finished!!! ta-da
I crackled the top and the inlay designs on the top two drawers.
i still need to do one more coat on the top drawers,
but its almost finished!
i'm so happy with it- and it was just what i had in mind :)
