From old and tired to bright and fresh! Chest/trunk re-do

$10.00
Easy

I've been on a roll lately given a lot of things a facelift! My husband bought this chest for my birthday 12 years ago. I have always loved it but it was time for facelift! This is my transformation.
Before and after. I didn't get a very good before pic but I was excited and forgot!

    Like 2 completely different pieces! Bravo! Love the pattern on top and well I'm a sucker for vintage letters on anything. Have a ton of letters from my ancestors from the 20's and plan to copy and deco them on just the "write" piece..or 2 or 4 or more. Nice work!
