    Beautiful job!!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    The ugly duckling is now a Gorgeous swan! How on earth did you get the green stain off without destroying the veneer? When I see a painted treadle cabinet I just close my eyes because I know I can't save it. Funny thing is I like some old painted country furniture, but I could Never put the first coat on wood that had a chance of restoration.
    You've done a beautiful job.

    Best I can tell the veneer was missing from the lid on both sides. That's probably why they painted it. The wood looked like plywood to me. New veneer wasn't in my budget at this time. So I scrubbed the daylights out of it. First with Citistrip and when that didn't work, someone on the New Home thread told me about ZipStrip. Still took several applications. I used ZipStrip on the rest of the cabinet.
