Lingerie chest: finishing

finished dresser

It has been a long time in the making, but the lingerie chest (the name for a tall narrow chest of drawers) is now compete. I gave it a once-over with 220 sandpaper and two coats of danish oil. I only oiled show surfaces because I didn’t want any oil smells on the inside where clothes will be stored. I also applied furniture wax to the drawer bottoms and the tops of the runners to smooth opening and closing of the drawers.

After a couple of days to air out, I moved it from the garage into my daughter’s room where, hopefully, she will be able to enjoy it for a long time to come.
