MORE THAN JUST A PEDICURE - lions foot chest

The veneer on one side and top had to be completely removed due to water damage.
We have all come across those bubbling and wavy surfaces and sometimes it can be fixed.

But not this time.
I stripped and sanded and filled and sanded some more,
then added several coats of paint and wax to get this crisp clean white surface.

The right side veneer was saved and I restained the wood on the left.

She has her original key locks still in place and I out fitted her with a set of reproduction handles.

She is painted in ASCP Old White and clear wax,
and is the perfect height for a grand bedside table.
