MID-CENTURY, DANISH MODERN, & RETRO FURNITURE


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.



Another familiar look of these pieces are the tapered
and angular legs they have.

 Like this sweeping long dresser pictured below
many of the pieces have handles built into the design.

I like the combination of a beautiful bone white paired
with the walnut finish on mid-century pieces.

It easily enhances the original
design, shape, and beauty of the furniture.
