I love vintage, estate and thrift shopping. On a weekly basis I would like to feature my favorite “find” of the week.
This week I am presenting an antique gentleman’s wardrobe made in the early 1900s. I do not have a before picture, but when I found this cabinet the varnish was faded, discolored and scratched, and the original bronze fixtures were painted black.
This was a weekend do it yourself project where I sanded the wood down to remove the old varnish. When I got a smooth texture I put 2 layers of cherry stain varnish finish (It is a product that has the stain and varnish combined).
This project took about 3 days because I had to wait until the cherry stain varnish dried before I could put a second layer.
I consider this piece to be one of my great finds.
I really believe that if you know what you are looking for you can make someone’s trash into treasure! I feel like that about life too…you can make a challenge into a blessing…it’s all perspective.
I hope you have a wonderful day filled with joy and happiness!
