While visiting my daughter in Virginia last week I went to an antique mall and found a piece of furniture that will be perfect for my home. I am not exactly sure what to call this. It is sort of a bookshelf and sort of a desk. What do you think this is?
The top shelf folds down to make a desk.
Whoever painted it in the past didn’t do a very good job of it. The furniture wasn’t primed or sanded and the paint is peeling horribly. I will be stripping it down and adding paint, wash and a wax to it.
Do any of you have any idea of what era this piece is from and what it is exactly called so I can do research on it?
