We found this french provincial chest and it needed
some cosmetic repair work as you can see below.
So we repaired all the missing veneer and sanded most of it down.
I primed it all.
Then, I decided to paint it in graphite by
Restoration Hardware. It is a muted
gray in a matte finish.
Painted the hardware in a iron steel color.
Our smooth professional finish.
No distressing a clean look.
This looks fantastic!
