Upcycled apothecary

By Brandy Kollenborn, Owner at Brushed by Brandy in Sacramento, CA.

I had long wanted a vintage apothecary chest, but they are so pricey. When I saw this cabinet, I had to have it. It was an old garage cabinet, handmade by the sellers grandfather, each of the 32 drawers individually made. Each of the 32 drawers was also sanded, stained, and sealed. The body got a coat of Dixie belle paint in the navy to set off the drawers against the body
