tall dresser

justin is working on a big project this week, so he's not quite ready for show and tell. but trust me, it's worth the wait!

this dresser came into my shop because the owners wanted it to come back to life. what you can't see well from the picture is that the wood veneer on the front was chipped and peeling away in MANY places. they wanted to repair that, but keep the wonderful rich look of the wood. it also need some repair on the feet, drawers and hardware.

these guys bought one of my first pieces (a dresser with queen ann's lace stenciled), and said they'd love to see this done in the same style.

after a lot of scraping, wood putty, sanding staining and painting i think it looks pretty good ;)
