There were so many aspects to bringing the Eiffel Tower chest together.
I had to replace many missing mouldings and do several repairs to the inside and top frame.
I learned that the underside of marble inserts are not finished and sealed
therefore can be painted and waxed.
SEALED AND POLISHED RAW AND POROUS
The original marble insert was bright orange and had damaged areas.
Get everything painted and waxed then ....
add an adhesive vinyl wall graphic after unscrewing
and cleaning all the fancy escutcheons (lock plates)
This wall graphic came in 9 sq. panels and I bought it at HomeSense about 6 months ago.
One of the final steps was to preserve the amazing wood interior by waxing and polishing the drawers.
