Drab to Fab

The other week, we took this chest from

to this:

I am in love! The color is Pencil Point by Behr in a high gloss paint. The knobs are Home Depot. They tie in with the chandelier nicely.

Here are a few pictures with more perspective in the room.

Ok, well, to be honest, my mom painted it. (Insert sheepish grin), but I picked the color and the knobs :) That counts for something, no? We have a second one and I think we will add it in the room next to this guy. The Mister is a little nervous it will overwhelm the space, but let's be honest - his opinion doesn't REALLY matter!
