Chest of draws

Hi all,

My next project is this small chest of draws with queen anne legs.

It looks original and is solid.

This one requires quiet a bit of work although I plan to have it done in one week. The main reason for long time is because I have to order new (porcelain) handles for it.

It should look quiet nice when finished and could be used or placed anywhere. I actually thought it would look great sitting in the lounge and being used as a table between two chairs or lamp table.

The colour will be in a semi gloss or mat finish enamel white and although not yet sure of the final finish I am thinking distressed or shabby again.

I was going to do this one full gloss white without the distressing although after closer inspection of the piece decided it would look far better this way.

Thanks for all your encouragement and lovely comments on my work I do appreciate it.

If someone is after a dresser and missed out on the last one I will be doing a bigger one next!!

So if your interested let me know as I can do it to order etc.


  1. Hey David,
    Can't wait to see what you endd up doing with this piece, I bet it will look a million dollars when you are finished!

  2. Homey your on a roll... it's good to see you so happy and working in your shed... its a dream come true for us both... (im so happy you got your dream with restoring furniture)
    Love you lots and lots always
