I spotted this chest from the curb at a yard sale two years ago. Snatched it up right away and had a makeover in mind for it. Sadly, nothing happens quickly around these parts........
It is solid cherry (with dovetailed drawers), but had an orange finish to it and brass toned hardware. Originally I thought I would stain it black, keeping it sheer enough to see the beautiful wood grain.

I like an eye-catching piece of furniture, a "statement piece", especially when it is small. My feeling is that even if you are a bit afraid of color, adding a small pop of it might not be too uncomfortable and adds a lot of character to a space.
I am hoping to find a nice home for her. Perfect for a beach house, don't you think? We live only 2.5 hours from the coast and many people in our area own second homes there. If only we had one!
