yep, back to the trailer park loot is where i'm headed with this one. i plucked up four fine pieces from that apple-orchard-embedded double-wide and here is number two.
meet braeburn. (i like a theme. it's an apple theme, in case you're new here.)
|handsome and strong as an old oak|
|well, except for his top that was a bit loosey-goosey|
i have a thang for these older dressers and also i have regrets about selling this one BUT...that's not what this is about. braeburn is about lines. just LOOK at those LINES! straight, classic, fine lines... on the side, too! sometimes, it's best to step back and just enjoy THE LINES. i'll stop yelling now.
so, he had great lines and great grain--great oak grain--and no major burn marks, scabs or scars so there was no reason to cover up those linear love marks, right? agreed.
after some serious sanding with the big gun 50 grit (it's OAK!)....
some rooftop repair and base realignment... (refer to my strappin' cool tools post if you're wondering what's happenin' down below.)
and some simple sill lifts (under $3/ea at HD & Lowes) for an industrial look...
|sharp, yet sorta soft and sweet at the same time|
|hmm... reminiscent of a firm, strong yet tart apple.|
|did you know that the braeburn apple "re-established the importance of flavor in the commercial apple?"|
he's done, he's gone, i'm over him.
on to the next apple in my life.
