Truth.... isn't it strange?

" Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities . Truth isn't "

it's all good!

Just put a second coat of Oil polyurethane on it. Mirror with frame is 29 "X 33" . This used to be a door on a cabinet. Found it in a second hand shop. The circle on the top right is actually a finger pull to open the sliding door. 

             I didn't add a stain color to the bare wood and I almost always use Oil based  polyurethane on pieces that have bare wood exposed . The result is this rich amber given to the wood grain. Water based products just don't compare with the depth you see here.

Having what others consider a flaw is what I see as an asset. This sliding cabinet door with it's little circle finger pull becomes a functional piece of art. It's "all good" now!
