I picked up this beautiful but tired old piece some time ago. He needed some serious repair work, the whole body was loose and needed to be reglued, drawers needed repair as well as patching all the broken veneer.
Painted the first coat in Old White, and the second coat in a mix of one part French Linen to 3 parts Old White. Some distressing and a little dark wax.
A feature I just love are the secret compartments on either side that swivel out and can hold your jewellery, etc.
Changed out the wooden knobs for some vintage bin pulls. (one of my favorite style of hardware).
It comes with a key that can lock all the drawers! I think he is quite handsome now!
