This is my first ‘picture’ post. I hope you can see it.
This is the oak ice chest I restored. It was all white, except for the mold and the coat of some red stain under the white paint. The hardware is original. it was white and chrome plated. I was cleaning the hardware and realized it was a little heavy for chrome. Wire brush took it down to brass. I replaced a board on the bottom and replaced a narrow board on the top when it came apart. It could acutally be used now. I used WATCO medium walnut finsh, 4 coats with a rag.
