Should I keep this?
We currently live in a large, old arts and crafts home. Age is starting to catch up with us a little, and we will be building a smaller, one level home. As part of that downsizing, I will be getting rid of some furniture items, giving to family or donating Mostly some small tables, wooden chairs/rockers and dressers.
This cupboard belonged to my DH's great-grandmother...or so we're told. Don't really know for sure. Is this worth keeping?
It actually looks better in the pictures than in person. The bottom edge in particular is pretty beat up. Looks like a dog may have chewed on it?? And the shelves inside don't appear to be original as there are metal shelf brackets along the sides, and the shelves are very thin. And in general it's pretty rickety, with lots of gaps between boards, etc.
Would like your opinion. Would you keep it? If so, how would you refinish it? Strip it? Paint it? or?
Thanks much for your feedback.
