Waterloo Armoire in Black



This is a used piece of solid pine furniture, probably vintage at this point. (We've been around a long time.) We finished it originally, probably in the 70s, and we finished it again, just recently. 

We've sold dozens, probably hundreds, of these practical Chests With Doors from our Waterloo Collection


Everything under the finish is solid wood. Good as new. The case is rigid, the drawers run smooth, and the dovetails are rock solid. 


How durable is the new finish? Very durable, and candidly, less durable than an all new item. We finished over the existing finish, not over new wood. We guarantee it, apart from abuse, for one year. 

With reasonable care, we don't expect any problems. With decades of experience, we have reliably solid judgment in selecting candidate pieces for refinishing, and creating solid outcomes.  

Also, when a new finish fails, it fails quickly.  We wouldn't offer it for sale.  

Is it Gross?

We don't think so. This item has been thoroughly cleaned, sanded, and recoated with an all-new minimum five-layer finish. 


This is not a new item, but it very nearly looks it. It passes the five-feet-away test easily. Up close, and with a flash light, you will notice imperfections. Photos are of the actual item offered for sale. 


This piece new would cost $5,295.00.


41" wide x 21" deep x 81" tall


We think it's cool and the opposite of wasteful to spruce up an old piece and keep it out of the trash. 

Refinishing Process

• Disassemble, remove all doors, drawers, and hardware
• Clean with mineral spirits
• Surface scuff-sand (to help the new finish adhere)
• Relic sand, to blend and or enhance damage or surface wear. 
• Mask off the interior of the cabinet and drawers, depending on design preference 
• One coat of primer, depending on colour
• Two-three coats of paint, depending on the colour
• Sanding between coats
• One sealer and two lacquer clear-coats, sanding between coats
• Wax the drawer guides
• Replace hardware, as needed, depending on design preference
• Reassemble


• Material: Pine
• Colour: Black
• Origin: Canada
