I had to remove about 40% of the veneer as it was buckling on all 4 side drawers and 2 of the 4 panels. Let's just say that heat guns work well for veneer removal...and they can also cause 2nd to 3rd degree burns. Ahem...not that I'd know.
The top and middle drawer were in near perfect condition and I wanted to save those. I'm not a wood purist, but if there are pieces left that look great, I want to preserve that.
Here is after the veneer removal:
And here it is today:
I changed out the pull on this drawer with something I had on hand.
I had to take the mirror off because it was so fragile, but that makes this piece even better. Hang the mirror on the wall for a vanity, but it can double as a desk!
Happy Memorial Day and thank you to all our Veterans!
