Morning, I finally have that furniture project I promised last week
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.
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.
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!

I have another furniture revival for Wednesday…two in one week…wow!
Leave me a little note below.
Thanks for being here, Kathy
