Iconic Cities Chest
Found this 3 drawer chest for a bargain price - loved the curves.
This piece - although blond wood - was in very good condition, an easy piece for resale.
I cleaned it with alcohol, and did a light sanding. I removed the drawers ( and old contact paper lining the drawers ) - it left a very sticky drawer bottom!
I decided on iconic cities as the theme. I searched, edited, and printed nearly 100 photographs for the new drawer lining. I put down a coat of mod podge:
I arranged the printed pics, let dry, and applied a second coat of mod podge. Clever way to get around the old sticky residue and update at the same time.
I chose “Toasted Poppyseed” as the color for the piece. Kilz Chalk Paint.
Two coats of paint later and drawers completed.
I then stenciled the names of my choice of iconic Cities. Pics of each city coordinate with the name on the drawer. Paint color on stenciling is “Curry.”
Here it shows drawers open revealing the pics.
I really love how this piece turned out - it will be for sale at Anita’s downtown DeLand Florida.
