From these pictures you can see the rust spots. I forgot to mention that the last owners or someone really "with it" in the 70's antiqued it, bless their hearts! We also added some feet to it, because you know it had that piece missing on the bottom. That leveled it up and will keep it from scratching the floor. I was thinking about keeping the buffing pad on it, but I lost that really big nail. So below is the finished product.
The Embossed Detail
The Inside - Lined with Burlap
I used a dark Brown Paint and dry brushed over the embossed detail with a copper metallic and used a rub on varnish over all. What do you think?
