This chest of drawers was given to us years ago. This might be the only mid-century piece we have in our house and I love it. Love the clean lines and solid maple wood construction. Take a look at the recent paint job on it. The muted mustard color was a mix I made of old paint left in the garage. Sorry that I don’t have the formula. The white color was also an old quart found in the garage.

I lightly distressed it, revealing old paint jobs of dark green and pink.

The brass dials used behind the drawer pulls are old spare parts from post office mailbox door fronts. I found those on ebay and knew they could be put to good use. To install them behind the drawer pulls, I simply placed them over the screw and then screwed the drawer pull on. No need for glue since the drawer pull holds the dial tightly against the dresser. This piece is for sale. Hope you enjoy it!
