    ] I recently came across 4 antique pieces. Unfortunately I figured it out after I chalk painted three of the four. Three are Conant Ball tables; 2 3 tier end tables and a coffee table. The other is an amazing Davis cabinet company American black walnut chest made in 1942. I did not paint it!! Not sure how much it’s worth, if I should sale or keep. Thoughts? 6C4BBD74-8D69-4867-8ADC-1F911845A9CE.jpeg 889FF6EF-C5B6-4F7D-A1EB-EC95621D51AB.jpeg 11421DA4-A536-42BF-8B71-CF3616C01DD1.jpeg

    It had water stains on it, but I have painted over now.

    Well - Conant Ball furniture is well and beautifully built. I think you should keep it.
    I fear it has little resale value.

    Next time try some Howard's restor a finish. Great for making certain marks disappear.

    Nothing of great value here so keep for your own use. Some Howard's would probably do wonders for that chest.
