B's piece

Do you remember this piece?  It was screaming 'unrealized potential'!  It was very loved when it came to me, but I think it will be even more loved now
Well, here it is now!!  Can you believe it!  B wanted the color to be really dark.  It is really dark, and thus hard to take pictures of.  But that is ok, because I think she is going to love it!  Can you even believe the wood grain, and all of the different patterns??  My friend Donna commented that, historically, furniture was made with many different species of wood, as carpenters used what they had.  With a lighter color stain, you could miss the different grain patterns, but this espresso color (a mixture, back & forth, of dark walnut & ebony stain from Minwax) really highlights the patterns.

B has her own knobs for this piece, but I just couldn't take pictures without knobs.  So these are temporary.  B, I hope you love it!  I can't wait to see pictures of it in it's new space!

PS... Does anyone know why my pictures are all over the place in this post?!  I can't figure it out, as the formatting seems to have changed.  A mystery for sure, and this technologically illiterate girl sure isn't going to figure it out on her own!
