Sweet Painted Vintage Chest

Ok, so this one doesn’t look too bad as is… but to me it just kind of lacks pizzazz. It also needed some drawer repairs but other than that was in very good shape and therefor a quick makeover!

How Sweet… AFTER

I repainted the outer cabinet in Old White and the drawers in Antoinette Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I lightly distressed, waxed and buffed the piece as well, it has such pretty, clean lines!

Perfect original handles under all of that white paint…

I soaked them in ammonia overnight to remove the layers of paint, this is the finish that was under all of that!

I think this is a super cute chest now… well I guess I thought it was cute before too… but I like it better now Smile

Hope you liked my little pink and white chest makeover! It’s heading up to the Lucketts Spring Market with me!

Thanks for stopping by!

My Signature

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!
