Before & After of the week

by | Aug 25, 2009 | Before and Afters, Furniture Makeovers, Hand Painted Furniture | 2 comments

This small chest of drawers was a $3.00 yard sale find that I couldn’t resist. The knobs are so ugly and the finish is dreary, but the shape is great, it’s solid wood, and it’s a well-constructed piece of furniture. I removed the knobs, filled and sanded the holes, and replaced the 70’s/80’s knobs with pretty glass ones. I sanded, primed, and painted the piece in a sage green and then highlighted the details with white. This is not a frilly chest, so I restrained myself with the decorative painting on this one. More before & afters in the future and, as promised earlier, I will start to include more detail & pics about the process. Keep checking!
