Chest Makeover

 Hi there friends...Happy Monday!!
Hope you all had a nice weekend!
~~~
The antique chest I found last week for our master bath is done and in it's new home...let's have a look.
Remember the Before...
 All this piece needed was a little TLC...
now she's pretty again!
 I LOVE how it turned out!
 I used AS chalk paint in Pure White. I didn't want this piece to look perfect so I heavily distressed it then waxed it using the clear wax.
  Kept the original pulls...I like how they look.
Next up is a side view...


Look at that shine on the top!
I had everything on hand for the vignette I created on top...the only thing new is the fern I picked up at the grocery store.
One more Before & After...
Never underestimate the power of paint!!
~~~
Thanks so much for stopping by...
This will be it for me this week, going to enjoy some time with the kiddos and get ready for our company on Easter...have a great week!

Love how that turned out! It doesn't even look like the same piece of furniture anymore. Love how you accessorized the top too.

Great job, Martina! It turned out beautifully. The hardware is pretty but I never even noticed it in the before picture. Now you can see it and appreciate how pretty it is. Lovely vignette on top, too. Just enough for a bathroom. I'm sure the fern will do great!
