Jacob was in very nice condition (minus the drawer that I couldn't find at the time and me being too lazy to attach the mirror), but fairly boring, and I was not in a boring mood.
Now Jacob holds his head up high and is loving his new duds. He now gets second looks when he walks into the library trustees meeting.
I loved the finish on the drawers, so all I did was clean them up and add some wood conditioner.
The base received my own custom color of chalk paint, topped with a heavy coat of glaze. I sealed the top with layers of polyacrylic and base with wax.
The hardware was very nice, and only needed a coat of paint using this method.
Jacob will have no problem charming the ladies at the weekly tea party.
Have a sunny day,
