Broken Restoration

By Sandy Roe, Artistic Designer at Sandy Roe, Artistic Designer in Medford, WI.

Once a dresser well used to the point the drawers were broken or missing.  The finish was blah and worn out from years of use.  I worked with my trusty craftsman (who built the wine rack insert) and repurposed this into a beautiful and functional bar as well as statement piece.  The stencil is NOT a transfer but a custom cut image that I stencilled with Amber Shellac.
