French Chest In Grey & White

My parents picked this one up for me because it was closer to them.  It's nice that they are always willing to make a furniture run for me!  :)  It's from Landstrom Furniture in Rockford Illinois - never heard of it but it's a 3 drawer solid wood mahogany french chest with dovetail construction.  It would have been beautiful refinished, but painting is what I do.  I sanded down the top in case I decided to stain it, but was pretty sure I was going to paint it anyway.  Good thing because there were several water rings that I couldn't sand out.  I painted in Annie Sloan's Paris Grey and Pure White and sealed with clear wax.  I went over the pulls lightly with Pure White and sealed with Miss Mustard Seed's white wax.

On a side note I use these brushes for waxing and buffing my hardware.  Love them!

Weathered Chest

I gave this chest a coastal look with Coco and Pure White, re-stained the top in dark walnut, and changed the hardware from the original Chippendale to these beautiful blue ones - they may be my favorite knobs yet!  It's the perfect size for an entryway or foyer piece, a changing table in a nursery, dresser in a bedroom, or an accent piece anywhere in the house.  Again the lighting in here and my photography doesn't do this piece justice.
