Before & After furniture restyle: vintage small chest of drawers

Ooh, I'm pleased with the outcome of this one, it's so pretty it's ever so tempting to keep it all for myself :)
Today's furniture restyle is a lovely distressed, painted 2 drawer wooden chest (h68 w62 d43cm) which has a pretty floral carving along the front of the unit underneath the top ledge. 


I have painted it with two coats of Annie Sloan chalk paints (carcass Old White, drawer fronts Duck Egg Blue) and also rubbed in two coats of wax. I have kept the original handles as they are so beautiful and finish off the unit perfectly. The drawers are currently unlined but I can line with pretty wallpaper if desired. This would sit beautifully in a guest bedroom or on a landing, but could be used in any room in the house, as long as it gets put somewhere it can be seen!
