Antique Chest

I repainted this using Duck Egg, added new hardware, removed the plaque and painted the inside of the drawers in French Linen.  The first paint job was pretty, but I just wasn't feeling it.  It just seemed a little old fashioned to me.  I like the new look much better!  This piece would be perfect in a guest room, nursery, entryway, or a bedroom.

I found this old chest of drawers on CL where I get most of my furniture.  The woman I bought it from said it belonged to her mother in law's grandmother.  She had been using it as storage in her basement for the past 15 years.  I love the little drawer on top and the original wooden casters.
