Chest in Black & Antiqued White with Espresso Glaze

Antiqued White Chest with Black Top - Facelift FurnitureFor their chest of drawers, Liz and Matt chose Antiqued White, with Black on the top.   On a very chunky nightstand that I recently posted HERE, they saw how I had used a mix of black and tobacco colored glazes to create a darker antiqued white look, and they wanted it for their chest.

I’m calling this new glaze color “Espresso”, and am very excited about how it turned out and tied in so well with the black top on this chest.  And with the distressed edges of the top revealing the white primer underneath, there is even more tie in with the overall look of the piece.

The new hardware, with a dark rubbed copper look, added another hint of color that complements the piece well.  The subtleties are much better seen in person, but the photo provides a basic idea of this new look.

Chunky Nightstand – Before & After

Chunky Nightstand in Antiqued White - Before & After

I think this may be the thickest, chunkiest, loudest, most obnoxious–or whatever you will call it–nightstand I have seen. And I couldn’t pass it up!

It is painted Antiqued White, with heavy Espresso glaze, and distressing for a great rustic look. Includes original weathered brass hardware.
