Bayberry Beauty

This piece was originally the top part of a chest-on-chest chest-of-drawers. When unloading the piece, it fell off the dollie and the bottom part smashed to smithereens. I was able to salvage the bottom legs/platform and attach it to the top part of the chest, creating this very versatile piece. It can be a dresser, server, buffet, entertainment cabinet, foyer statement piece, basically anything you want it to be. It was painted with Bayberry Chalk-Style Paint, lightly distressed, glazed with Van Dyke Brown, and top coated with High Performance Topcoat in Satin. I changed the hardware to this beautiful oil-rubbed bronze. I love top, which was done with the Antique Walnut Gel Stain and finished with Arm R Seal. It was General Finishes all the way with this one! It sold in less than 24 hrs!
