Boxwood Chest Transformation
This antique chest was solid oak and had a lovely rustic feel, but It had been "modernized" in the 60s with added feet and new hardware. (Not the look I had in mind) The bottom drawers did not slide that great so I removed them. I had some old farmhouse wood trim pieces that fit great in the bottom of the shelves. I chose to darken the top and paint the body with milk paint in boxwood. Metal baskets fit on the shelves and give some extra storage. The piece measures 30wx18dx28h. Perfect size for so many things. It would be great in for an entryway, or for a coffee bar, or for a kids room...
