It looks like such a great , solid piece of furniture. and the shutters just add to that curvie piece on the bottom !!! It's just Fantastic... ( I WANT IT !!!)

sorry it took me awhile to get back to ya, I use heirloom white then I use a WATER base stain (do not use oil lol) in a med brown....if I cant find the right color stain i get a light color and just add some paint til i get the color i love...you brush stain on then wipe off asap...its alot of fun to do plus if you have furniture in bad shape nicks and scratches this just adds to the shabby look
