I mentioned in my last post that I have been working on another furniture redo. Well, here she is...
She was in sad shape when Mom and I picked her up (yes, another Craigslist find). There were huge water stains on the top, randomly drilled holes, the inside was all scratched up, there was a large chunk missing in one area, and two corners were broken off of one of the drawers. Oh, and she smelled! I opened the drop down desk and the perfume just about knocked me out. So here are the before pictures...
You can smell it can't you?
Even with all the dents, scratches, and smells I loved the look. The curvy top, the awesome legs.
I really wanted to stain the top, but I was not sure I would be able to with all the water damage. It took some serious sanding, but I was able to sand all the rings out. I am embarrassed to admit it, but I was sore the next day. Pathetic, I know. I filled in all the holes and rebuilt the broken areas.
I cleaned the hardware with Brasso. Amazing stuff!
I stained the top, inside, and bottom a dark walnut and then painted everything else a midnight blue. I really like the way she turned out.
Look! No rings!
She is now for sale!
What do you think?
