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.
