Furniture Refinishing

One of the things you find with houses of a certain age is that they don't have closets. That poses a problem of where to hang or store clothes. To solve that dilemma we decided to find various sizes of chifferobes for the three regular guest rooms.
This small one apparently had been painted a "Wicked Witch of the West" green at one time. Sanding, staining & sealing in a Minwax Antique Walnut and picking out new hardware.

This larger piece will go in the larger of the three regular guest rooms. It needs a little structural TLC, but not much in the way of refinishing. We need to brace the back.

This medium-sized oak piece needs to have the mirror re-silvered. Going to learn how to do that - gotta be a DIY article on that somewhere, right?

This poor table came with the house. It had so much water damage that two layers of veneer have to be removed. Sanding and staining next.

Stay tuned for finished products!
