Waterfall style 30's Bedroom Set
This chest of drawers is part of a large bedroom set including a vanity, night stand, vanity chair, etc. It came in with this dated white 'antiqued' paint all over the set. I guess the paint gives it a sort of cute country charm. But that is not quite what the current owner wanted. They brought it to us to have a complete 'makeover'.
The makeover began by stripping all that paint off. Paint is not easy to remove, but had the owner tried it themselves, they would have had a horribly difficult task on their hands. Fortunately, we have a very good, immersion stripping system here and that paint practically melted off. Boy were we all in for a surprise when we found what was hiding under that paint!
