Definitely eastlake... If you only paid 35 dollars for it, definitely spend the money to restore. I would not worry so much about the feet missing.  I would focus on the paint.  Since it is already painted, I would try to either match the existing paint color or try an heirloom white on it and get the appropriate eastlake pulls for it.  You can find them on line for around 12 or15 dollars. Remember,the less you spend on repairs,the more return you make if you decide to sell it.  I myself would fix it up and love it for the price you paid.  I personally love,love eastlake..  I would love to see the final outcome ...  When you're done text me a pic at 864-321-4786.  Thanks.

Expertise

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. robertsantiques@cox.net You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.

Experience

I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
