Furniture Restoration Projects

This vintage chest was a $5.00 garage sale find, and in rough shape at the time it was found.

It's practical usefulness was nearly at the end of the road, and its future looked very bleak (Firewood City).

The frame was solid and the dovetail joinery indicated quality construction, but most importantly, its "spirit" was whispering to me as I looked it over.

We decided to restore and finish it in colors and style to match a young girl's bedroom. In addition to several hours of detailed hand painting, we used antique drawer pulls and a beveled glass top.

In short, we turned this old relic into a unique family heirloom. Now it makes a statement and its spirit is no longer whispering! Both the young lady and her family are thrilled with this piece. Its appraised value now exceeds $2,000!
