this wardrobe was my grandpa's.  i never met him, but it's all i have of him, so i couldn't let go of it.  however, it had horrible scratches and peeling varnish, so i gave it a makeover and polished it up as much as i could.

Wow! That is just gorgeous! I personally like the darker version more than the white one, but I bet it's a pretty intense look in real life.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

I wouldn't have guessed they were the same item if I had only seen the pictures. Gorgeous re-vamp.  Smiley

It's so lovely that you kept it and could modify it enough so it was nice to use. 

Great job.
