This is the original Craigslist picture that drew me in…can you see why?
The tiered top, the turned legs, the shape…I loved it all!
Apparently when the seller purchased this it was painted yellow and she took the time to strip off the paint.
She didn’t fully finish the refinishing project though a some of the wood was different colors and not then stained to match.
I didn’t want to mention to her that I planned to repaint it, but of course I did.
I tend to avoid that discussion when I purchase pieces as some people don’t really get the vision of you know what I mean.
Regardless, I loved this cool piece and I couldn’t wait to get rollin’!I thought his chest needed a strong, deep color so I decided to go with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Artissimo
which is a rich navy blue.
I sealed up the chest in Miss Mustard Seed’s Hemp Oil once I was finished distressing it.
I added some knobs from my stash…some of them were off an older dresser and thanks to D. Lawless Hardware’s great selection of knobs, I was able to match up some stinkin’ cute knobs for the top drawers that look great!
He is so handsome now!
