As with most solid wood furniture from this period, the set had a hideous opaque surface on it that completely hid the wood underneath. I was pleased as punch when I sanded the tops to reveal the outstanding wood grain of the solid maple tops. So incredibly pretty! I custom mixed the paint color, which is a rich pewter gray, and swapped the ho-hum Chippendale drawer pulls out for antique turned wood knobs that I saved from a previous project. Oh, and I also removed the drop leaves on all three pieces, because drop leaves on a coffee table is as useful as an underwater grill.
This set is for sale, so let me know if you want measurements!
