More variety with less talk.......
Filler flowers that I don't recognize. If it is baby's breath it is larger than the normal variety.
I didn't get this posted with the others. I wanted you to see another before and after of the brass cleaning.
I actually ruined this piece of furniture with my aquarium leaking on it's top. I sanded it out some and maybe will work at it harder some other time, but for now it has some good water stains on the once perfect top.
In actuality, if I hadn't rescued it from a furniture store in Aplington, Iowa many years ago, it would be in a landfill right now as the new owners of the store carted all the used furniture away to the dump.
The piece was originally a sideboard with a dining room set and had legs on it that made it taller. I destroyed it's integrity by making it into a tv stand by removing a foot off of it's legs. It also was stained this dark blackish walnut stain to even out it's color. It is made from poplar wood. The good kind of poplar not the paper and plywood making poplar. I have a dresser and mirror that matches the poplar wood but not the design.
Thanks for reading......
