I’m still slowly working on getting the pieces of one of those freebie filing cabinets sanded and painted.  What I’ve done so far looks starkly white.  I’ve been dreaming a bit of what I can do to them to make them look a little more interesting.  I may try antique glazing andor sanding them with a wire brush.  I kind of like this look:

If I can sand down to the original finish you’ll see brown through.  Or maybe an antique stain will leave dark splotches in all the right places.  Anybody out there ever done this before?  I’m experimenting but would really like to create something other than a monstrosity!
