Vintage White French Chest

I purchased this from someone who was downsizing their collection.  I paid more for it than I normally would but it was gorgeous & I just had to have it!  It is a big, beautiful piece!


Look at those legs!  I really wanted to keep it for myself!


This one was so easy!  Just a couple quick coats of Vintage White, lightly distressed, & sealed it with a coat of Varathane.  







It sold in less than a week at the shop.  I knew it wouldn't last!  I'm sure where ever it is, it is making a statement in the room!

  4. Visiting via Wow Us Wednesdays!
    Your beautiful dresser caught me eye. I have one exactly like it. My husband and I purchased it at a local flea market for less than $100. Currently in it's original "dark stain" and in the den.... where my hubby hangs out. It is fabulous just like it is.... but, if we ever move it.... it will be painted white.
    Thank you for sharing and giving me a glimps of what mine will look like when painted.
    Best,
