We Struck Gold

Hi Ya'll!
Well my free dresser just keeps getting better and better! My husband and I started stripping  and sanding and it is gagagorgeous....I planned on painting but we aren't sure yet...whata you think? There are a few cosmetic problems that may require paint, but only time will tell. We removed the mirror frame so the top has two holes that have to be filled, and a couple of the drawers have chipped corners, but that just adds to the charm, right!? The best part of the day was WE STRUCK GOLD...the top, sides and drawer fronts all have an inlayed double pinstripe of gold. The stripper didn't damage it so we are not sure what it is made of.....does anyone know? Take a look at the pics and let me know what you think. Don't laugh at the space that  we have to work is the super packed garage (no car in here!). This is where we keep all our finds and projects....Amazingly I have sold and given away more than I have (sure wish I had known about blogging...I would have taken pics).  See ya soon!
