This little drawer chest has been hanging around in our attic for quite some time and it was time to bring this sad piece down to give it some tender loving care :)
The leather on top was all dried, ripped and ugly, under it was a layer of blue fabric which was holding its filling.
The filling was old school, saw dust! It was still neatly in place but not my choice of filling.
Once all filling, nails, fabric and leather was removed I sanded the wood completely until the woods beautiful color came back, a pinkish warm colored wood and as soft as baby bottoms :)
I decided to spice it up with a fancy leather instead of a classic more obvious brown leather.
All freshened up and totally not something you want hidden away in your attic, I love how old pieces are strong and beautiful enough to fix them up and give them another life, unlike new stuff that just gets thrown away.
This newly revived beauty is now available in our home decor shop, StarHomeStudio.
