When I saw Martha at an estate sale in Scituate. I scooped her right up:

Here is the drawer before, I applied the dark wax:
|Applying dark wax|
See how the wax got in the detailing and the grain of the paint? I just love that. I got these great glass knobs at Target and thought they add a bit of class to Martha.
Here's a close up of the dark wax on the Old Ochre:
I really love Martha's curved and delicate legs:
I actually love her whole shape:

See she has an octagonal shape and those sides lift up to allow storage for fabric, but you could also store design magazines and catalogs. You could event tuck a kindle or kids toys (in a pinch).
What do you think? Do you think Martha Washington would be proud? My Martha is looking for a new home, so let me know if you're interested.
