Chasing Waterfalls - Cedar Chests, That Is....

There seems to be a love/hate relationship with the Art Deco period out there, including the waterfall style.  However, I personally love the look and the craftsmanship put into the designs is nothing short of total admiration.
 
I came across this chest at a recent auction and it needed quite a bit of cosmetic work.  I've done several of these over the past few years and knew I was up for the challenge.
 
Here's a glance at what it looked like when I bought it:

 
Not real pretty.
 
With some refinishing work, it's now glowing with beauty again.  No paint needed for this one!
 
 
Look at this detail!
 
 
I brought back the cedar smell with just a bit of sanding with some 220 grit sandpaper.
 
 
Clean as a new penny.
 
It even has a hidden drawer...
 
 
So, perhaps chasing waterfalls is not always a bad thing.... :)
 
'til next time!
