Cherub Chest

So, what was I up to with this little cherub?


Well, the last time you saw this tall chest,


it looked like this.


After adding base trim, and my little cherub, this is the stage I was in when during my last post. Multiple layers of white, green, and blue.


I then applied a sand color.


After sanding back to reveal multiple layers of paint, I applied stain and other brews, along with a satin finish.



This piece reminds me of a skyscraper.


I decided to use different hardware for the cherub drawer.


That is how the cherub, and the chest, became a "Cherub Chest". Love cherubs, I've used them before on my redesigns, and I will again.

Thanks for the visit to my new blog. I'm happy I stopped back. This is beautiful. I'm with you on the cherubs. You do great work. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your blog.. going to snoop... I just posted my little green table I did, but I need to learn how to paint this beautiful aged white look. I'll do some posting from my kitchen this week. I did a 5 layer paint job on my "tin" ceiling. Happy Monday Jules ♥

I especially love how you changed up the hardware on the drawer with the cherub. I think that is pure genius and really adds so much to the piece. So impressive.
