Remember my adventures with Mom's bench from December? If not, you can view the original post here. In January, I took it to Ackerman's and Sons to see if what was possible for restoration. I went and picked it up today and I am so happy with it. The wood has been restored and sealed in the original mahogany color, without losing the antique feel of it. And the upholstery was finished so nicely.
I could only get the real feel for the color in natural lighting. And the beauty of the flame mahogany just glows.
Even the inside of the drawer was stripped and sealed, and the wood burned label is still there!
