We purchased this Stanley Furniture piece in Lynchburg, VA, where it was stored in a basement. Unfortunately, mid-century modern (MCM) pieces are hard to find at a reasonable price point, even those that need a little bit of love. We ran across several challenges with this piece that made its restoration a bit frustrating at times, but we think it turned out great. More finished pictures are featured at the end of the blog.
Fun fact, Josh interned at Stanley Furniture when he was an undergrad student and has always enjoyed restoring some of their beautiful pieces.

Josh and Sydney are life adventurers that love to learn and create. We are exact opposites and enjoy gaining new perspective. Our home is where our varying personalities shine, and we use it to gather our friends and family together.
