Craigslist TV Console

This is a neat piece that I found on Craigslist.  I loved the bowed top and front drawer.  Our plan is to use this as a TV console.  The door on the bottom right opens and there are 2 shelves that will be perfect for a DVD player and the Wii.  I sanded down the top and middle top drawer and stained with Minwax Dark Walnut.  I used ASCP's Paris Grey on the rest of the dresser.  I sprayed the original hardware and ordered the two mercury glass knobs from Anthropologie.  I then lightly distressed and used a mixture of Annie Sloan's clear and dark waxes.
