MY FAVORITE PIECE OF FURNITURE

MY FAVORITE PIECE OF FURNITURE
This is my favorite piece of furniture. I bought it , I think in 1980 at a junk shop for $15.00. It was covered in the mustard antigue glaze that was once popular and the bottom drawer was in five pieces. Oh yeah and half of the knobs were missing. I must have really had a vision! Anyway I stripped it and just rubbed it down with tung oil, fixed the drawer and added new knobs. I think it turned out really well. Sorry about the pictures propped up on the side, but when you are an artist, you always have paintings sitting around!
