This painted antique cedar lined hope chest was brought to me to be stripped and refinished. I had no idea when I got it that it was walnut veneer underneath all that paint. The inside was in remarkable condition and the cedar lining was very well preserved. The rosette details were very well preserved. And the artisan turned bun feet were in remarkable great condition. We discussed changing out adjustable trunk lid support with either a new brass leaf support or spring loaded lid support but the client chose to keep everything all original.
