Vintage Travel Room Coffee Center

I'm still working on details of our 'vintage travel' themed guest room/study and just added this coffee station.  The table was one we've had for a long time but was in pretty sad shape with lots of water stains and scratches.
 One coat of Annie Sloan Paris Gray chalk paint, some distressing and waxing brought the bottom back to life.  The top took a lot of sanding and then a coat of stain and two coats of poly.

 The drawer handle was painted in A.S. Graphite and the drawer lined with a paper showing "vintage" tickets.
 The shelf on the wall was a thrift store purchase for $2.00.  I painted it with A.S. Emperor's Silk chalk paint, distressed and waxed.  The coffee tin was one I had that I painted and added the vintage coffee graphic.
 The room is nearly finished . . . just a few more touches and small projects.  Here are a few other parts like a window pane bulletin board center, a vintage camera display
