The Finished Product

I did a post in April of this year concerning refinishing furniture, especially antique furniture. The piece I am referring to is the Chester Drawers my wife and I purchased in an antique shop in Tennessee that was in horrible condition at that time; well the piece is fully restored and being used in our foyer of our house now. I wish I had an image of what this Chester Drawers looked like before I restored it to its original state.

We purchased it for our son to used 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 antiques pieces character.
Open and close wood grain with the top and bottom panels verses middle section.
Solid poplar top
The finish product with original 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.
