The Piece I almost passed up
I did not get any before pictures of this nice piece...again. I nearly passed it by. Usually pieces that are similar to this are not made of wood and not very well made. This is nicer, made of wood and quite a bit heavier than I expected. The finish was a bit worn and the knob was a dated white floral porcelain knob. I wanted to give this a more stately, distinguished look. The finish was freshened up with Minwax Polyshades in my favorite mahogany of course! Two coats of a top coat for protection and a new knob and this piece is ready for a new home. This could be used as a telephone stand, an entry way piece, with a lamp and a basket for your keys, or a table to hold a special statue, or even your silver tea set! This will be at the cabin tomorrow!
