In Friday’s “Furniture Details” post I tossed out a photo of a Newport dressing table (or lowboy if you prefer), but shot from below. The idea was to get you looking at not only how the piece was made but how things had been repaired/replaced over time.
I made the post into a little contest to see who could pick out what was wrong on the piece. And, we had a few who tried to cover all the bases by saying the whole under carriage was replaced, but others took stabs at specific parts. What interested me the most was the reasoning behind the choices (whether they voted for everything or specific things).
I said I’d let this thing run until 8am today (Monday, June 30) before divulging the answers and announcing the winner of the contest. And, after sending the submissions off to an independent accounting firm to tabulate the results…I think I’ll jump into what’s wrong with the piece and why before I announce the winner.
