I'm not really sure why this piece reminds me of Winston Churchill.
It's obviously not a traditional British flag, but according to a little bit of internet searching, it is very similar to the flag of England.
So for now, for no better reason than it makes sense to me, I'd like to introduce you to Winston.
I love him.
I think he'd look smokin' in an entry way, classic in a bedroom or a conversation piece in as a buffet in a dinning room.
Here he is originally.
I stripped and sanded the whole piece, stained it in Minwax Cherry and painted the drawers in ASCP Old White and Behr Forbidden Red. The hardware is from...our dressers. Yes, we are currently without hardware. Oh the things I sacrifice for my ugly duckies. :)
Right now he is in at my booth at the Barn Sale in Gilbert.
And he's up under the For Sale tab at the top of the page.
PS. I figured out why he reminds me of Winston Churchill.
A strong piece,
but totally awesome. :)
