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!
