Well it's done. :)
It's not perfect, but that's one thing I like about antiques, they are like people, not perfect but beautiful and totally unique in their own way.
I love scratches and character lines, they show how well loved a piece is.
Thankfully this one didn't have any of those really deep stains that are impossible to get out (working on one of those right now).
So here are the after pics, I hope you enjoy them.
Anyone that knows me, knows I love to research things, furniture is no different. So I found out this piece is made of walnut on the outside, and mahogany and gum wood on the inside. The stain I used was a dark walnut stain, then a few coats of minwax poly to protect it. I love minwax, I've tried a few other brands, but this just seems to work the best for me.
Ohhh I so wish I could keep this one.
Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
