Way back in February I shared with you all about my fabulous Craigslist find! Remember this gorgeous vintage chest of drawers? I fell in love with it even though it had a few minor issues...
The drawers were all in working order and the entire chest seemed to be sturdy and strong. Just a wee bit of repair work was needed on some missing carved scroll work, but other than that it was an absolutely stunning piece of furniture! Not sure I'd have even considered painting it had there not been the missing pieces (you can see some of the missing pieces on drawer #2).
Here she is after her makeover! Certainly the most beautiful and enchanting vintage chest I've ever given seen. Hard to let this one go!
The original handles/pulls were left in place and some creative work clay-work was needed to refashion the missing piece of scroll work. Not perfect, but you really can't tell unless you are looking!
Isn't the crown on the chest beautiful?
Beautiful detail work!
I love how this vintage 1920's era chest came out...couldn't wait to show you!
Destined for my shoppe/booth today!
Love to you...
