This chest of drawers is in our master bedroom at the Florida house. My brother bought it from an antique store several years ago, I think he paid $65 for it. He used it in his home and passed it down to me last summer. A previous owner did a poor job in trying to refinish it because it was an awful orange color and coated with a heavy shiny lacquer. Sorry I don't have any pictures but I'm sure you can get a visual... its something I'm sure you've all seen before.
I sanded the entire piece then painted it a creamy off white. The knobs used to be big wooden ones. I replaced them with classic antiqued iron knobs.
Above the chest are framed antique book pages. They are hand painted butterfly illustrations my brother brought back from one of his Paris trips. Just something he picked up at one of the many fabulous French flea markets... sigh. They're framed in $3 frames I bought from Walmart and spray painted.
I hope this inspires all of you white lovers!
Happy hump day!
