Every now and then I come across a fun mid-century piece of furniture that needs a rescue.
This time it was a 4 drawer chest, the exterior teak veneer was very weathered, stained, and dried out.
I removed the drawers and sprayed the cabinet with a flat white enamel to block the stains.
I then sprayed the exterior with a creamy white Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
I finished it up by dark waxing the drawers and clear waxed the body to get that soft velvety feel
I adore so much.
There is something regal about mid-century furniture with its simple shapes, clean lines, and unique designs.
Like this sweeping long dresser pictured above many of the pieces have handles built into the design.
Another familiar look of these pieces are the tapered and angular legs they have.
I like to combine a beautiful bone white with the walnut finish on mid-century pieces.
It easily enhances the original design, shape, and beauty of the furniture.
