Not all pieces of furniture need to be painted like this next
project of mine. Believe it or not all I did was strip a thrift
store find to come across this amazing finish underneath.
Check out the close up pics and the before pictures below.
I found this little chest at our local Value Village.
It was covered in some very ugly paint, it had no handles, and chewed legs.
And it was a whopping $75, but I loved the shape and size and had to have it.
I couldn't sand it because all the details are pressed into the wood.
It took about $50 worth of strippers and days to get all the ugliness off.
What was left was a mix of white & gold & green & wood.
I added 4 authentic vintage glass knobs, something my mother gave me years ago.
Are you ready for the BEFORE pics?
