Since it now had just a little bit of chipping, I went ahead and used my palm sander to add some distressing to the rest of it, and replaced the top knob with a cute little white flower knob. The top drawer was pretty messed up on the front, so I painted it as well, but the bottom two drawers didn’t look bad, so I left that wood unpainted since the wood is pretty.
If our “guest house” (my glorified term for the outbuilding we’re remodeling) ever gets done, I plan to use them in there, but I brought the finished one in the house to get these photos of it. Isn’t this little cast iron Ice wagon toy adorable? It belonged to my father-in-law, and he brought it to me last time they came to visit.
