Old Violet Chest (SOLD)

Hi folks!

It's rare that I come across two identical chests, several months apart.... but I lucked out a couple of weeks ago and found an awesome bow-front mahogany chest that is an exact copy of the one I painted in Old Violet this past February.  I've had so many folks reach out and ask for a piece just like that one in Old Violet.... so this one is for you guys!  :-)

This lovely vintage blue color, with just a hint of purple is SO awesome.  It really is one of my all-time favorite colors.  When you add dark wax, it becomes a gorgeous gray/blue.  It has such depth and I find it to be one of the most interesting of the Annie Sloan chalk paint colors.  It's definitely not what you expect from the name Old Violet.

The classic lines of an antique bow front chest are perfect for a color like this one.  I love the detailing on this piece - also love the original pulls.

All of the dovetailed drawers work perfectly, and are quite deep to provide lots of storage space.  One of the drawers has an interior divider.  I've given it two coats of the Old Violet paint, distressed it, and coated it with both clear and dark wax.  It measures 47'' tall x 37'' long x 19 1/2'' deep and is priced at $460 (SOLD).

If you're interested in purchasing this chest, please send me an email by clicking on the "Contact Me" tab above - thanks!
