Antique Dresser Re-Finished

This Antique Dress was my Mother and Fathers. My Mother just gave it to me and after being opened and shut by 5 daughters and 1 Son its condition needed some love and care.
It was with great love that my husband stripped off the old varnish to see what wood was used in the construction of this 72 year old or older Dresser and since it was not a Fine Hardwood like Maple, Oak, Cherry, Pecan, Walnut. etc. I felt comfortable giving the Dresser a new look using all the origional hardware.
All we did was clean the pulls, which I felt fortunate they we still there after all the years and 6 children.

Mama, This Dresser is done in loving memory of your Love for your family. Mama is 90 years young and will be 91 in October. Love you Sarah
