This chest was almost useless due to broken drawer slides and the finish was badly damaged. Gratefully, the wood was in good condition. I purchased this chest from the local Restore Store for Habitat for Humanity. It had been marked down to $6.
While I was working on it, a client stopped by to look at the credenza I had finished 2 weeks ago ( my most recent video). She loved the credenza and purchased it. However, when she saw this chest after I had stripped it, she offered to buy it for $350 provided I use Antique Walnut stain to match the credenza. ( I can't help but wonder if she would have wanted to buy it if she saw it before it was stripped!)
I think you will be amazed at the final results! I know I was. This entire video has no spoken words- only shops sounds.
