Dresser restoration

We had this dresser come in, our customer wanted us to restore it and paint it and then wax , but after taking the 3 coats of paint off we found that this dresser was tiger oak and was in very good shape I was able to talk them in to not painting this and they agreed after seeing what was under all that paint, in restoring sometimes you find a diamond in the rough and this was one.

Rick,

What a nice surprise! You did a wonderful restoration. So glad you could convince the client not to repaint.
