Pine Chest of Drawers - Uber Chic Painted White

 This pine chest of drawers is very pretty - can imagine it was acid dipped back in the '80s after being painted in the '70s.

Here's how she was when I picked her up...

Still looking good - if not a bit uninspired.  I just love those chunky drawers and empire lines.

I gave her a few coats of an antique white chalk paint before working through with sandpaper.

I let the wood come through naturally, where there are raised surfaces and knots to show.

The ultimate in shabby chic - finished with a clear wax to seal and protect.

This cute little chest will brighten up any room :-)  Beeeaauuutiful x
