This little cabinet came to us last summer for a quick fix up. The owner of this wee cupboard asked us if we could touch it up a bit....you know...glue up a piece of lifting veneer and slap a fresh coat of paint on the top. Nothing too difficult and certainly not a complete restoration. Well, not too long after that we got a call from the customer to say that since making a move the cupboard didn't fit into her new home and she wondered if we would we like to buy it. Ummmm....YES!!!
Our next decision was whether to leave it "as is", do a bit more fixer-upper work but keep the basic yellow cupboard with red trim as is or sand it down and begin a complete restoration. We have a hard time leaving well enough alone....a little sanding here and there lead to a bit more sanding and before you could say "Holy Art Deco Motif"....we had unearthed the original finish.
So here she is....back to her original colour and sporting the aforementioned art deco motif in taupe and black.
For those of you who may be interested....it is a small kitchen cabinet measuring a mere 36 inches wide and cute as a button! (at least we think so!)
