Back when I picked up the Mahogany Vanity and Dresser set I also found this lovely Mahogany serpentine dresser. It was funny because as I scrolled down CL and responded to the ads it finally dawned on me that the same house had lots of "my kind of stuff" items listed and I finally just said, "can I come look at anything you have listed today?" Thus I ended up with several lovely pieces that had been in their family for many years. This dresser had been through many a military move, and being retired military I could definitely understand it's condition. Lots of veneer chipped off to include one rather large corner. The finish on the drawer fronts was really rough, possibly from extreme heat in storage?? At any rate it is just a classic, beautiful piece of furniture and I couldn't wait to return it to glory. I know this is a shocker, but I forgot to take before photos. I don't hold out much hope of improving on that front, but I'll try.
vanity and dresser, I chose to again base coat it in ASCP Old Violet. This time though I used a wash technique with the second coat in ASCP Paris Gray.
