I was very elated when this gorgeous chest showed up on my doorstep. A client brought it by for me when he found he didn't have the time to finish it himself. The green paint that was on it was already partially stripped, and the lid disconnected. at first I could not determine what the detail on the front was made of and I almost assumed it was rusted metal, you'd be surprised to know it ended up being Birds Eye Maple! Some hand painting and antiquing was all it took to make this once hopeless hope chest desirable once again!
