Mid Century Chest Before and After

Well, the 49ers waited a little too long to get it together last night, but watching it with my daughter was entertaining enough.

I haven't had much luck finding quality furniture to paint lately so I was pretty excited to find this mid century chest (which was marked as a desk by the way.. I was confused too.)
 Modern, clean lines, dove tail drawers, yes please.


 I thought it needed a more "modern" color so I went with a minty green. 
No distressing, stain or wax. Just a semi-gloss poly.

I love how it came out!

Another "BEFORE"

And after I brought it to the shop...

I hope this is the beginning of a good luck streak in furniture hunting.



  1. I'm so timid with Green...I love it. thanks for giving me courage :)

    1. thank you! i agree, finding the right shade of green can be difficult, but just go for it :)
