Antique Walnut Chest (SOLD)

You guys.  This one.

The photo is lovely - but it is so. much. more. GORGEOUS.  in person.  :-)  It was hard to capture just how beautiful this piece is with my camera lens.

The combo of the dark, sophisticated paint color and the GORGEOUS original hardware and the beautiful detailing is almost more than I can handle.  I loooooove it.  :-)  Weird?  Maybe.  

It's not just the outside that's gorgeous… the interiors of the drawers are so beautiful.  The wood grain is amazing and they are spotless and sturdy and just awesome.  Check out that dovetailing. 

Can we talk about the hardware for a sec?  It's got such amazing detail - and the original patina shows up beautifully against the Graphite paint. 

This piece is a true antique from the 1920's and is made of walnut.  It's in absolutely amazing condition - every drawer moves in and out with ease, and it's as sturdy as can be.  

Aren't the legs lovely too? 

I've painted this chest in Graphite, with a distressed finish and clear wax for protection.  I think the walnut wood shows up so beautifully in the distressed areas.

I think this would be a gorgeous addition to any bedroom - a master, a boy's bedroom, a guest bedroom - take your pick.  It would be lovely in an office, or in a dining room, or in a foyer.  Or in an anywhere. :-)  Measurements for this one are 46'' tall x 36'' wide x 19'' deep and it's priced at $420 (SOLD).

If you want to make this one yours, send me an email at and I'll get back to you right away.  Thanks!
