I hate that I did not take before pictures of this lil' beauty I found on the curb.  I cannot believe someone thought this little guy was garbage worthy!  Its found condition looked as if someone had attempted to sand it down.  I finished off the job, painted it chocolate brown, and distressed the piece. I also added some "new" old hardware I picked up out of a barn during an estate sale. Boys and girls, keep your eyes peeled!  You never know what someone deems as trash!
