This is an antique chest made of solid cherry, with four dovetailed drawers that work beautifully. Each drawer has the original antique hardware, and there's a hidden pull-out shelf at the top of the piece - perfect for extra display space or as a writing area. This chest would be lovely as a smaller buffet in a dining room, as a desk in a child's bedroom, as a foyer piece, or as an end table with storage. It's been painted Duck Egg Blue and given a distressed finish, with clear wax for durability. Measurements are 30'' long x 31'' tall x 16'' deep. Starting bid is $75.
