This chest of drawers belonged to my niece and before that I believe it belonged to my aunt. If I remember correctly it was a light blue color and then painted pink, white and purple for my niece. And that's when I got it. For a while it sat in our basement, not really sure where it would make its debut. Then I thought, "could it be an entryway table?" I moved it there thinking it wouldn't fit, the door wouldn't open and it would look out of place. I mean, a chest of drawers in your entryway? Buuuut, I loved it! So I painted it a dark charcoal color and switched out the hardware. I wish I had a before picture to show you but this is project I did last year and I didn't document the process.
I did, however, come across a (blurry) picture of what the space looked like sans entry table...boring!
Much more inviting now, don't ya think?
I dressed the top of the chest with some flowers, a candle, a ceramic jar and a silver tray for guests to toss their keys. I love how much storage all of the drawers provide-I tuck all sorts of things in them, but mostly extra candles. This chest of drawers has proven to be a perfect entryway table!Pin It
