Work In Progress

A pair of Victorian chests with some very pretty details.  It’s nice to find a coordinating pair.

Their potential is about all these puppies have going for them right now.  Look at the condition they’re in!  Not just anyone is crazy enough to tackle a job like this.  But they have great bones in their solid walnut frames & are totally worth bringing back from the brink.

And sometimes you come across a little something special that makes you glad you decided to save them.
Can you read what it says?  A private note beautifully written in cursive found on the underneath of the chest.  It was only meant for one person to see – I wonder who.  Was it was a plea to a beloved in the hopes that they would stay?  I like to believe it is, and I hope they stayed, and I hope they were glad they did.

I am completely motivated to save them now.  And I will make them beautiful.

 Sanding & drudgery complete.

 It's now on to the fun stuff, although not just yet.  This pair is going to take some time but def worth the wait!
