My First Finished Piece!
I fell in love with this little 4-drawer box at ARC for $8! It was definitely not mass produced–each drawer has a tongue and groove finish as well as handwritten placements: “draw 1 from top, draw 2 from top,” etc.
I have to give mad props to this little guy’s builder as the finish on the drawer fronts was a wonderful old crackle that made them seem more like aged leather. SADLY, since this was my first piece, this detail is barely visible now. I didn’t know how to work with it so I may have sanded it down… GASP! I could shoot myself now, but live & learn I suppose. Still, this piece turned out to be cute and functional, and is perfect storage for my antique doilies.
