By Cindy Collins, Owner, Designer at Romancing the Home at Queen of Hearts Antiques and Interiors in Buford, GA.

Winning Category

This Mid-Century Serving Bar had all the beautiful classic lines of the era.  It also had all of the nicks, stains, scratches, and scapes of a half-century of wear and tear.  After thoroughly cleaning and prepping the surface, General Finishes Water Based Stain in Walnut was applied over the exisitng finish.  High Performance top coat was then applied to protect the finish.  Fabric was added to the center drawer as a finishing touch.  The entire piece was transformed back to its original glory all the while staying true to the Mid-Century era without all of the drama (and trauma).
