Bow front radiator cover

Different style but for the same friend. This one goes in a different room. This one is painted poplar also.

You can certainly make something ordinary look extraordinary!

Is that a metal mesh insert?

Yes it’s a metal woven mess that is antiqued brass finish.

That beauty is called a piece of fine furniture not a cover .
Can’t say I have seen a cover for many years but even back then I don’t remember seeing a piece like this .

It looks great.
love the bowed front and the concave “corner”
How does the paint hold with the heat?
Did the wood move much and cracked the paint?
