French Chest $225

Updated- Sold

This chest was one of my 1st Craig's list finds.  I was instantly in love with the lines of this piece.  Unfortunately I didn't take a before pic :(  but I do have one of the matching nightstand.  Just to give you  an idea of what it looked like before

I sanded the top down to the bare wood & lightly sanded the rest.  I painted the chest a beautiful clean white, distressed & glazed the whole thing.  I stained the top ebony & then waxed it to protect it and add a little shine.

Measures 50"H x 18"D x 35"W
