Some of you might remember the makeover of this
When I removed a bad paint job,
I found a worse paint job...
pink top drawer, red door, blue door, green drawer, etc.
It was a disaster.
I removed the rippling veneer from off the top,
but painted over all the other imperfections in the veneer...
and ended up with this...
Better... right? :)
I finally got tired of all the veneer coming off the front
of the doors and drawers so we removed it.
Wow! What a treasure hiding underneath!
The most beautiful wood with worm holes everywhere!
It's amazing to me that back in the day they went to such great lengths
to cover imperfections that we sometimes go to great lengths to imitate.
(Ever taken a shot gun to a piece of furniture to create a "worm hole" effect?)
( I haven't either... but there are those who will remain nameless...:) :)
I didn't stain the fronts, I just used a dark wax.
Rusty knobs and cup pulls work perfectly on this piece
which still has the original beveled mirror and wooden castors.
This piece just keeps getting better and better with age!
Have a wonderful day!
