In 1989 I bought this small dresser for $25.00 in Charleston SC. at a yard sale. It was painted and damaged drawer face had been patched with Bondo. I used it for a work top for a short while causing slightly more damage. I made an Oak patch to repair the veneer. I can clearly see now that was wrong because it is made of something more like Elm.
The secondary wood is Pine. It has a nice beaded detail on the front with two serpintene drawers, a curved top and a simple look.
It has served us well and traveled to many countries and back again. Now it is off to the antique shop.
Thanks for looking, Roz
I used over the counter wood filler and it shows up very well, but that is not what I wanted of course. The finish is Golden Oak and urethane. My guess is that it was originally intended as a painted country piece but I did not realize this at the time. I was too eager to refinish it. I did a lot of learning on this piece.
