Couple questions about a buffet (pic)
I bought this buffet on Craigslist for $50. I had intended to try and refinish it, but once I saw it in real life.. I decided I should paint it black. I know how most of you hate painting antique furniture but it has a lot of damage I wasn't expecting.
This tag is in the top drawer. From research I believe this was made between 1905 and 1920. Does that seem right? The drawers are dovetailed.
Also do you think using one of the paint on primers where you don't have to sand will work on this? I believe this is veneered. I will sand the roughest areas. I do plan on reusing all of the drawer pulls. TIA
