A pedestal

Seeing this post last week made me think of a similiar piedistal I refinished at about the same time as the below shelves.

I do not find any before-pictures, but it was a plain wooden piedistal with some water stains on it.

I wanted to experiment a bit with colors and so I painted it in a blue-green shade, almost like old copper. It was quite a nice color, but it was to hard to match with anything, because it was neither bold enough to stand on its own or subtle enough to blend in.

So I gave it a brushed on coat of white on top and got a distressed look that I like quite a lot. Naturally, it could have been better, but it was my first try with that technique, so don't judge to hard.
