Coastal Chic White Chest

Did you guys have a good weekend?

Who has the day off today?

No college classes for me today, woohoo!

The sad little chest came from My Favorite Junk Shop.

Kind of beat-up but I could see potential there.

The original color is a very pale minty green.

I’m not sure what you would call the finish on the drawer fronts.

I don’t think it’s real wicker or rattan but I could be wrong.

Some of you may be able to give me a little more info on the style.

sanding funiture

The top is laminate or whatever you call that slick hard finish.

I usually don’t worry with sanding it but there were a few spots of fingernail polish and some kind of thick gooey stuff.

replacing furniture hardware

It was also missing a hardware pull.

In my hardware stash I found a piece that covered the original holes so I only had to drill one hole for the new pull.

I didn’t have a pull that fit the original holes.


Recently I ran across a furniture makeover with a simple white finish and silver hardware.

I really liked the look so that was what I wanted to achieve with this piece.

With all the wicker detail the chest didn’t need a busy paint technique.

I sprayed all the hardware with silver paint.

This finish is one that doesn’t really photograph well.

I know…it’s just me.

I need a professional photographer on call!

A perfect piece for the little princess in the household.

I titled this Coastal Chic because it reminds me of the beach and Florida and furniture found in the condos along the coast.

Yes, I’m having Florida withdrawal.

It’s been 4 years since we returned to Tennessee but I still miss Florida.

I hope you liked the makeover!

  1. She’s beauty Kathy! I love the silver & white magic you worked on her. Come on down to FL anytime. We’re here 😉 and it’s nice and warm.

  2. As usual, you performed your magic! Great piece…I could see it at our family’s beach cottage!! Hugs~Christy

  3. Poor little beat up thing!! But no worries, you made it beautiful as usual Kathy!! 🙂


  4. Love the white– I had a short time where I wanted colour on everything, but I think white is just awesome in the home to brighten up a space 🙂 Unique looking dresser, too!

  5. i have every day off lol… it does look like the condo pieces in fl i am missing it a lot..miss the warm..not the hot…they have had frost on the ground…and really whining about the cold..i just tell them to bite me lol… i am glad you have this nice day off because we are in for some more really nasty weather starting tuesday… i would put that dresser in my room does that make me a princess lol xx

  6. Like this piece very much…you are too modest. I think the photograph is good. So fun to bring an old piece back to being useful even if it looks slightly different!

    Yeah for YOU!

  7. Great piece Kathy, you would never know it is the same piece. Amazing what a little paint can do isn’t it? Oh I think your photos are just fine.
