i give it a C at best

I took my first stab at furniture restoring/painting/whatever you call it.  I had this mini bookshelf i wanted to put in the playroom.  I cant really remember where it came from or how long we have had it.  Its been in the garage holding weights and dust and cobwebs. you know, things we use daily...
So -here is what i was workin with...ugh

I sanded the you-know-what out of it.  

then a soft coat of yellow, when it dried, I ran the sander on the edges to make it look old-er-ish

and TA-DA (or as LA says, daaahhh)

I did touch up the bottom of the legs post photo...
