Little Black Chest
This cute little "9 drawer chest"
is not really that.
It is cute, but it's not a chest.
It started out as a small entry hall credenza.
It had a mirror too.
Very dated looking and just not what I wanted.
Notice that there is only one little brass knob on the door.
I had looked for years for a
not too wide, and not too deep
black chest for my small entryway.
I knew just what I wanted...
and I was taking my time.
This time I was not going to settle.
Then I saw this credenza.
It wasn't really what I wanted...
but it was just what I needed.
It was not the right color or style...
but in this case ladies...
"size did matter".
It was just the right size.
I had to fill a 36" x 14" space.
Sometimes smaller is better.
Now look how cute it turned out.
I am in love!
I just lightly sanded, and use the same black spray paint
that I used on the sofa table ~ turned writing desk
that I shared in this post.
The best part is the little knobs.
It now looks like there are
9 little drawers.
Some things are just what you want...
after you make them over!
