My real life project

I bought this for $20.00 at a yard sale. I want to display my dollhouse on it when it gets a fresh coat of paint. It had a few rough places, a few scrapes but it's real wood. It needs a coat of fresh paint. I like the color it has but we'll see what I do with it....

Well, it's not much different. I did like the original color but it's freshly painted and nice white knobs! My doll house sits on top in full display but it's going into rehab now so I am not showing it.


  1. Very nice chest!!! It is always nice to have a real life project! Cant wait to see what color you choose. LJ

  2. It is looking nice already, i love the shabby chic look, maybe with some nice knobs.

  3. Oh, I love projects like this, the possibilities are endless! lol Thank you for your kind words on my blog, I really appreciate them! Post a picture of your finished piece! You did a great job stripping it, I am not very good when it comes to taking finish off! Can't wait to see what you come up with! :) Kim

  4. Great buy Chris, perfect to show off your dollhouse. The storage will be valuable too - maybe for keeping Christmas decorations for the dollhouse etc in? Looking forward to seeing how you finish that chest, you've done a great job of stripping it off ready. Hugs, Sandie
