What type of item is this? Functional How would you describe the style of your project? Retro / Vintage How would you describe the style of your project? Funky What are you most proud of? This piece may have been handmade/homemade as it had a few dodgy construction techniques. Bought this about 15 years ago and procrastinated for that long!! The top had a massive separation of the boards. I used a 2 part epoxy to fill the crack and it took ages to sand and patch 3 times. I think the repair job was worth it on the top, but I opted to leave the same crack on the bottom level since it showed the history (read - I felt too lazy to do it all again!). Proud of getting my project finished - onto the next one now! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Maybe when you start distressing, step back more frequently to reassess the finish. I think I took this a bit too far - I find it a little theatrical! Like something out of Pirates of the Caribbean! Though with a little styling it could be truly 'Fab'. Perhaps I'm just too used to seeing 'smart' furniture and need to loosen up a little!
