Marble Topped Eastlake Style Chest

I love this chest! It is such a great size and while those flower appliques were amazing I couldn’t save them… Crying face

Also, since not all of the pulls were on it I had to find a solution for that as well…

Here is what I started with… beautiful grey and white marble top, well bulit vintage Eastlake chest.

AFTER

I painted the outer cabinet in Graphite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and the drawers in Paris Grey, I just thought this color scheme would look great with the marble top!

The graphite helps brings out the pretty veining in the marble.

I just think this little gingerbread apron is so sweet!

I decided to use some of my stash of lion’s head pulls (yes, I have a stash of them… doesn’t everyone?) they fit perfectly over the existing holes… I am still wondering whether I should distress them or not… I like the juxtaposition of the “new” with the old… What do you think? It would be an easy fix, I’m just not sure…

A shot of all of the monochromatic colors…

And the “lovely” goodbye shot… sorry I had to take these pictures while it was still on the dolly, but this thing is HEAVY with the marble on it! And no one was home to help me move it… Crying face

I think this would work great in the foyer or as an occasional piece… but I would REALLY love it as a vanity for the powder room… now that would be GORGEOUS!

Thanks for stopping by…

Until next time!

About Susan @ Uniquely Yours or Mine

Hey there! You want to know more about me? Well here's a little bit... I'm the lucky wife of a Super Awesome Husband (SAH) and a mother of 3 wonderful girls. We moved to Louisville, KY in 2013 from Richmond, VA where I was refinishing, repairing and painting furniture as a serious "hobby". Since moving I have been spending most of my time designing and updating our new-to-us home, but I do enjoy getting out and exploring my new town as much as possible!
