Ha Ha! That made me laugh...I easily entertain myself. I just finished this 30's waterfall style
vanity and nightstand. I am normally not crazy about waterfall style furniture however, this I really do like.
My client inherited this from a family member, It was super old and in super bad shape. It was almost ready for the burn pile...It tried to kick my butt, I prevailed! I am glad they chose to let me paint it, cause it would have been impossible to replace all the veneer ,trim etc.. I had to rip a lot of bad stuff off, and then replace with some new pieces of molding, backing, and used a fair amount of wood putty, glue and clamps. It was very similar to plastic surgery. Hee hee hee! Here she is, restored, beautiful, and ready to be admired by her owners. She has been through the ringer. Please be kind to her. Holder Family, thanks for letting me bring her back from the dead! Oh, and these photos are minus the new mirror that is coming. The original one was broken. Enjoy both pieces! I feel triumphant!
