You SHOULD be proud! It looks beyond amazing! I get so sick of seeing all that "distressed" multi-layered, multi-colored look! Thank God for people like you! I can see you spent many labor hours with such a beautiful piece as this! I not only give you a thumbs up but a huge WELL DONE!

I have just found your post. First off, thank you for taking off all the paint that had been put on this beautiful piece of furniture. It turned out beautifully!! I had to laugh when you said you had to take this piece apart to get it into your compact car. I have been in the same situation 15 years ago. I got a steal of a deal for an antique Victrola through an online auction. At the time I was driving a Maxima. Not only would the Victrola not go into the trunk but wouldn’t go in the back seat either. We had to literally take one of the back doors OFF the car being careful not to cut or break any electrical wiring. We got the Victrola in the car but when we got home we had to remove the door again. Thankfully, I didn’t end up in divorce court. Just wanted you to know that you weren’t the only one who had trouble with getting a treasure into your car. 🤪
