Let me introduce you to my latest makeover...VICTOR!
We've been calling him Victor for the last few weeks, because as we were cleaning out his dirty drawers (LOL - I couldn't resist!) we found package of mailing labels from Victoria, MN...and so he became Victor.
Vic was in tough shape: a broken leg, lots of loose parts, missing/chipped veneer and years of visible use! But nothing lots of work and plenty of patience couldn't fix.
Victor's body is painted in ASCP Graphite with Napoleonic undertones. Since the quarter sawn oak on the drawers and doors was so beautiful, we just gave them a quick sanding and a coat of Dark Walnut/Kona stain. The painted areas are finished with dark wax and the rest has a top coat of satin poly to give him years of durability.
