Chest in Distressed Barn Red – Before & After

Chest of Drawers in Distressed Barn Red - Before & AfterThis pine chest of drawers was given a whole new look with paint, glaze and distressing!

The chest was refinished in Barn Red, with Black glaze accenting all the molding and detail.

Distressing revealed the original wood tones, as well as the primer which added extra pop.

The original pulls were spray painted black. Since one of the pulls was missing, the holes were filled on the top drawers and holes for knobs were drilled.

Barn Red Chest of Drawers – Before & After

Red Chest Before & AfterWhile most of the pieces I refinish are older, vintage types, occasionally I find newer pieces that are great candidates for a painted and glazed look.

Take this chest of drawers for example. With the molding on it’s drawers, and unique pulls that were keepers, I decided to refinish in Barn Red, one my favorite colors.

And then I let glaze do it’s magic. For more on how glaze transforms the look of painted furniture, go HERE.
