I sold this piece a few months ago. I originally bought it for $10, and sold it for, I think, $20.

I also put around $30 of materials into fixing it up. I got new bottom panels for the drawers, reglued all the joints, washed off the crap on the wood, and also treated it with anti-urine-smell stuff because some birds or something pooped on it.

I also did a light refinish with stain, to unify the colors. Lots of little things added up to make it a much nicer piece.

It’s not a great antique, but it’s a nice antique. I’d guess it’s from the 1910s to 1930s and from North Carolina. Lightweight and pretty sturdy, it provided good service, and looked pretty nice.
