Re-finish and Re-upholster

When I came across this dresser today
I was immediately drawn to it.
Could it be that it's red


or that every drawer has a lock hardware

or is it this beautiful
dovetail work. I've never
seen dovetail like this before.

I did laugh at their attempt to lock
the top drawer for private reasons.

What ever the reason is who cares.
All I know is it needs re-finishing BAD but....
I so love the color...

My flea find is this cute
Victorian (???) chair for
dirt cheap!
It does need re-upholstering.

You may not hear from me for awhile since
I have 3 projects to start and finish!
ACK!!!

Hugs...Sylvia

I love your flea finds. They are really beautiful! We are renovating the house, so no projects here for the time being. I am sitting in an almost empty living room right now!

My jewelry set: I don't know exactly what sort of stone it is. I bought it in a webshop in Turkey.

Have a wonderful day,

Natacha

I too have a chest of drawers with that kind of joinery. I researched it and learned it is called "Pin and Cove" and was used in the late 1890's and early 1900's, according to "The Harp Galery" You made a great find! ( I love the pink!)
