Before & After

Side by Side Rescue

This side by side was rescued from a barn and then spent many years in the family garage. When we were called for restoration it was in sad shape: loose and missing veneer, missing hardware, binding drawers and doors, missing shelves, warped and loose backs, loose joints and a damaged mirror.
