Refinished Old Furniture

Pictures of Catherine’s old wooden school desk and buffet that Gail had refinished by a professional.

See for yourself …. these pieces are totally restored in 2018.

The first picture is of the buffet without the mirror attached. The frame part of the mirror was broken, the corbels were not attached, the mirror was very dirty. The buffet had layers of paint and lacquer.

Once the refinisher removed all of these layers, she found a rare find —-  tiger oak wood. She was able to save 4 of the drawer knobs, the rest fell to pieces and were replaced with the glass knobs.
