Florence Chest

50"H x 36"W x 20"D

This piece was really out of my comfort zone!  I am a very neutral person with most of my stuff painted in greys and whites.  I've seen so many pieces painted in Florence and the color looks so rich and deep that I thought I would try it.  I actually mixed a little Provence in with the Florence for this piece.  The top was re-stained in dark walnut and the chest was sealed with clear and dark wax. I have been using it in my daughter's room for the last couple of years unpainted and she decided she wants a dresser I have in the garage.  I like it, but it's a bold color so we'll see how long I can keep it for sale before I re-paint it.  :)
