Thank you again to Sarah here at Finishing Touches for welcoming me with another one of my beloved furniture transformations.
I found this little chest at a second hand store here in the Vancouver area.
They wanted too much for it but I just couldn’t leave it behind.
Saving pieces like this is what I love to do and do best.
and I wasn’t willing to damage or lose any of it.
The process of removing all this built up paint
took time (the entire spring),
and 4 cans of stripping chemicals (approx. $50)
In any event it was looking more amazing each time I finished a section.
The mirror was purchased for a client,
but as luck would have it she never showed up to purchase it.
Because of my love for this piece,
because of the cost of this piece,
because of the labour I poured into this piece,
