This beautiful dresser was picked up for only $45 from some girls who were graduating and needed to dump all their furniture. It wasn’t until we got it home that we noticed the stamp on the inside drawer saying it was solid mahogany and from a good furniture company! Since it was made of good quality wood, we decided to stain the entire piece. There was tons of wax and scratches on the top, so everything was stripped down and sanded.
We stained the piece with special walnut. Since the wood was reddish to begin with, this color just darkened it a bit. The entire piece was sealed with lacquer, and the interesting original handles were added back on. Nik kept this piece for himself.
