Here is the before
I thought a white wash or gray wash would be great because the wood was dry and it would've soaked it up. But on the first go around, it turned pink immediately. Solid mahogany that was bleeding badly. I could've used oil based primer to block the bleed, but decided to go with a distressed black instead. I used red oak stain to bring out the details.
And a hidden little drawer!
Love the shape of this one!
