I know there are the 'wood lovers' out there and then there are the 'paint it' people and I say the world is big enough for both of us. If you have furniture that you know longer like or no longer fits in your decor, why not paint it and love it again.
i went outside my confort zone to create this old world piece. I don't usually distresses my furniture this heavily but i thought...why not.
This 4 drawer chest was just waiting for something different and i gave it a whole new look. Three coats of paint, cream, sage greens and a soft gray and then the distressing to so the various colours.
