That turned out to be a really lovely dresser. We’d love to see it with ornate brass hardware.
Thanks for posting.

Thanks; Lightweight,Ottat, Fireone:
The finishing was a major frustration!The wood had an unusual stain from the factor that covered up the strange colored wood.
It was finished but not as I had wished it to be.
Happy New Year to all of you.

Yes, that stain job was nothing but desperation and frustration!
Tried all types of preparations and pre-stain fillers. Some water based stains, etc.
One the next restoration, may try water based stains for dyeing clothes.
One can only try.
