~VINTAGE CHEST OF DRAWERS~
Popping in today to show you our latest furniture transformation/makeover! Found this amazing 1958 Chest at a local estate sale a couple of weeks ago and hauled it home! Originally it had a cheval oval mirror (dated on the back) attached to the top that was truly wonderful...but, the mirror was cracked and since I didn't want to spent $100+ to have it replaced we forged ahead with the makeover without it!
The Chest was in excellent condition except for one problem... If you look closely at the before picture you'll see the back left leg (larger inset photo) was missing. At some point over the past 55 years it broke off at the glue/joint seam! Not a hard repair for my Mr. AGPMan! He traced the right back leg and cut a new left leg from hard oak. A wee bit of wood glue and a couple glue claps later it was as good as new. It's an incredible piece of furniture~solid maple and so lovely!
Painted it out with a soft white chalk paint and then gently distressed it. Clear coated it and then buffed it out! Done! It's going to my Booth at Serendipity Market tomorrow!
Summer is winding down...can you believe it? I'm busy enjoying what I hope are our final HOT DAYS of the Season.
Hope you are well.
Love to you...
