Just "chalk this up" to me wanting to be different.
I almost always paint in (off)white or (off)black--those colors seem to sell better/quicker--this time I had to be different! This wonderful old chest has been dry-brushed in green--yes, green. I think this gives it an "anthropologie" look and feel. The drawer pulls are fabric--I realize not everyone would understand this but really it's just another "anthro" trick.
Now why can't I sell to Anthropologie?
This chest can function in a bedroom as a dresser--in the den, to hold a television--on in a dining room as a buffet or sideboard.
