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!
