Old Never Dies.

This is a shot of my parents old dresser.
My Mom loved this set when it was new.
She treasured everything she owned.
She waxed and polished to no end.
By the end of some 40 odd years, the wood yellowed from
all the polish she put on it and made it look awful

But I remember her with this piece and decided nope.
I will do something to let it live a little longer.
So I sanded it, stuck on a few corner decor pieces and got a can of gold spray.
I sprayed it all and then appliqued some flowers and such.
Then out came my old Varnish spray to seal everything and voila.
I got a refreshed living piece of furniture again.
Its not perfect but it's a good enough effort at recycling.
My parents' picture still stands on their bedroom bureau.
I added a few tidbits for decoration.
Since I like tea sets,a set made by Adeline Fine Porcelain and
crystal candle holders enjoy the fruitful portion of the piece.

Old Never Dies. It just gets better.
Need Proof??? Watch the videos

Have A Good One :)
