When I first looked at this piece I thought, "Oh, just a little polishing and it'll be good as new." To my surprise, that is not what the after was about to reveal at all.

This piece of furniture got a full on Art Deco Makeover. The original style of this piece didn't fit into the rest of the home's decor, so it got sanded, painted and pounded. It took 1300 upholstery nails to get it to its final state. That is some serious dedication. To see the step-by-step details, check out Akicsihaz.
