We purchased it for our son to use one day in his house, but in the meantime, we will keep it safe here with us.
To get the full picture of the transformation of the Chester Drawers you will need to check out the April post link:
When working with different wood species, open and close wood grain can display different shades when stained; which gives antique pieces character.
Open and close wood grain with the top and bottom panels verses the middle section.
Solid poplar top
The finished product with new solid glass knobs and brass key plates!!
The mirror above was purchased at a flea market for ten bucks and refinished to accent the Chester Drawers. Cathey did a fantastic job of staining and varnishing this piece. My job is to get the piece ready for the stain and varnish. In other words, I do the sanding and the removal of the old varnish on the pieces we refinish.
