"Some of the most incredible furniture has come out of the early 20th century. Much like this petite solid mahogany Martha Washington sewing cabinet! Every detail was carefully and uniquely crafted from it’s sleek carved legs, to it’s teeny tiny glass knobs! What an absolute treat it was to work on! I updated this piece using General Finishes Milk Paint in Lamp Black, and then sealed it with Annie Sloan Dark Wax. Restored the legs using Howard’s Restore-A-Finish." - sincerely_katiek
