The age you see on it is both man and element made. It was built and 'antiqued' by my 19 year old hands then given to my mum for a stint. She recently handed it back (spacial issues nothing personal;) but I let it sit outside for a good 6 months! Of course this was a purposeful strategy to get that greyish sun-aged tone that is nearly impossible to mimic.
So I recently reinforced the back, sanded the drawer insides, added the chalkboard effect and bought some snazzy pewter knobs to finally release this into the world. I think she's finally ready;)
