I refinished the pair in crystal blue chalk paint and then painted in the grooved trim with ivory to help distinguish more of the fine curves and swerves. This is the same color as the Antique Sophisticated Cottage Dresser that just sold. I wasn't done with that color just yet, I suppose. And there is probably more on the way because the tint is simply lovely and soothing. The color is more accurate in the last photo below and in the ones for the dresser. I took these outside which I thought would be perfect, but the gray day cast its shadow on them. Even adjusting did not do the color justice. I added some light distressing for highlights of the curves and lines after these photos were taken.
Fully refinished backsides, these two look great whether coming or going. Feel free to place them center stage in a room. Don't have to put these babies in a corner. They are very heavy, solid and sturdy. Great quality vintage pieces.
Prefer to have the set grace your space, but will sell individually.
