It is shameful how some people let beautiful old pieces of history come into such disrepair. I shouldn't complain really because it has meant that I am able to buy her, so I'll shut up now.
This poor old lady is filthy, (not me, the dresser) she needs a major clean up (oh ok maybe me), a few pieces replaced and some restoration at the base (ok definately me). There are a few drips of white paint on her too. Guess what I'm going to be doing over the next few weeks? ha ha! I'll get some photos on here tomorrow when she arrives, Prerestoration. I hope that she is salvageable and I don't have to resort to painting her.
Whatever the outcome, I am very happy with myself. My hall is crying out for a statement piece. Lets hope she does the job. She looks a bit like this. Actually a lot like this, but a third as wide again and with a bit more detail.
I am so excited!!! Here are a few more examples.
let me know what you think
