I bought this vanity for $20. Really cool art-deco style. It was in stunningly great shape to begin with…but just needed some TLC on the top. Some VERY CAREFUL sanding….hours of it….and then 6 coats of poly brought it back to…what I can only guess…is near original condition. It’s now a desk for my GF.
One interesting aspect of this project were the drawer pulls. Their design encouraged the pull to dig into the face of the drawer front and scratch the veneer. I ended up have some co-workers laser out a design in sheet metal that I used to try and both ‘enhance’ the pulls as well as keep them from spinning/slipping and messing up the veneer.
