May Flowers

May Flowers
Aw, sad!  This dresser looks like it got shipwrecked somewhere.  It probably fell of the Mayflower and floated its way across the salty Atlantic until it drifted ashore, where it remained for centuries – half buried in the sand, half exposed to the harsh elements, until one fateful day it was unearthed, dusted off, and sold to Sara and Stacey from Sugar Scout at an estate sale. That’s my version of what happened, anyway.  
They report that it was a bugger to deal with because of all the warped veneer, so maybe my version isn’t 100% accurate.  Either way, it’s a stunner now!  Check out the close ups on their site to see the detail on the new knobs. (hint: it’s flowers!)

    nice work veneer is such a challenge that most people don’t attempt it, but glad you did. It looks swanky now

    Hey “sweettouch”….thanks! We worked hard to get the damage along the sides repaired first. The top was also tough because of the numerous cigarette burns which left large gouges. The orbital sander has become my best friend.
    Thanks for the sweet comment,
