So I finally score on CL! (pic 1)
But then -- oops! (pics 2 & 3)
Guess someone in the 70s decided to cut off the legs and update with this lovely mirror effect (plywood underneath.) Yay!
What should I do? I'm keeping these, this is the only way I'll ever get an Arne Vodder into my house. Should I: 1) take it off and put them on the ground, 2) make a new, less noticeable plinth thing and paint it, or 3) try to get someone to make legs -- anyone got a set of Arne Vodder legs lying around? Wait, make that two sets! Or 4) something else? I am confused.
Also, there are multiple scapes, nicks, etc. Is this solid or just a really really good veneer? Can I sand it and re-finish with teak oil like I would with Moller chairs? Or bad idea?
Finally, the drawers were all out of order. Does the V shape on the double one go so that, were you hypothetically to be able to look at it through the back, it would make a V? Or the other way around? (pics 4 & 5)
Thanks for bearing with all my noob questions!
