I love vintage and antique items…especially if they are a little different then an everyday find. I was lucky to have one of those days today. First I took a look on the UsedOttawa site and saw this great cedar chest.
The chest is a * WATERFALL Red Cedar GEORGIAN CHEST (Trunk) by NABCO *
NABCO or otherwise known as The North American Bent Chair Co. LTD. from Owen Sound Ontario was established in 1891 and produced this nice Red Cedar Georgian Chest. Also called a Waterfall Chest or Cedar Trunk.
I know it looks a little rough but for me it was perfect! It meant that I could re-do it and not have any guilt. The veneer is peeling away on the top and also on the bottom front and bottom sides. No worries, I will just peel the rest of it off. This will not be easy.
I am going to research to try and find an easy way to remove the veneer but in the meantime if anyone has a trick please let me know.
Then I received an email from an antique dealer that I have purchased from before. He had a few pieces that he thought I might be interested in. I picked these 4 pieces and they get delivered tomorrow.
This is an antique mahogany gramophone. I am really anxious to get this piece…my mind is just going in circles thinking of the different ideas I have for it.
This next piece is an antique radio cabinet. The two doors on the front actually open and there is no back on it so the possibilities are endless.
And last but not least is this antique pine table. I am not sure the exact size of it but I do know that I don’t want to do it in Duck Egg Blue.
