The couple was looking for the perfect piece to store all the odds and ends that make a home. But particle board cabinets and Ikea hutches weren't what came to mind. After a fruitless search of the usual stores, the couple turned to a consignment shop, where they bought this behemoth:
Space for storage? You bet your tuchus. And style to spare? Well... the bones were good. That's what 1700s workmanship will get you: beautiful lines and solid construction mixed with nicked doors and an imperfect finish.
The work was intense. Think sanding, puttying, gluing and more sanding. Then take a mental journey to a land of painting and glazing. Is your brain fatigued yet? Mine is...
Oooh, but the after photo makes it all worthwhile:
Yes, friends, that's what we call a masterpiece. Check out that finish. It's a milk paint and glaze by General Finishes.
Here are more before and after photos for you to fawn over.
I'm inspired to get the rest of my furniture projects wrapped up. What are you working on? Any big undertakings in your future? Share 'em below in the comments!
