Vintage Lingerie Chest Makeover

This vintage lingerie chest was in very nice shape when I purchased it.  I’m sure there are many people who would like it in its original condition and would say “don’t paint it” but I beg to differ.  By painting it, it becomes that much more unique and instead of appealing to the masses, wherever/whoever they are, it appeals to the one person who will put it in her home. At the end of the day, I think that is the only person who truly matters!

Hardware – Replacing Vintage Hardware

In the case of this particular vintage lingerie chest, my lovely customer chose to replace the existing hardware with new brushed pewter paisley cup pulls from D. Lawless Hardware. They always have such a great selection of hardware!painted lingerie chest, paisley hardware, d lawless, new hardware

Drawers – Lining Drawers

The chest is a bit deceiving and actually has five drawers rather than the standard seven. The bottom two drawers are extra large double drawers, and all of the drawers have been lined with a removable soft blue-gray liner. painted lingerie chest, painted chest, just the woods, lining drawers, vintage lingerie chest

The Result – Painted Vintage Lingerie Chest

The body of this vintage lingerie chest has been hand painted in multiple layers of different shades of gray.  The entire chest has been distressed to perfection before being sealed for protection. I promise I wasn’t trying to rhyme there. Gray painted chest, lingerie chest, layered paint, chalk paint, gray paint, staten islandShades of gray, painted chest, painted furniture, lingerie chest, vintage chest, staten island, nyc painted lingerie chest, gray chalk paint, pure home paint, nyc  d lawless, painted chest, vintage lingerie chest, lingerie chestShades of gray painted vintage lingerie chest by Just the Woodscup pulls, d lawless, chalk paint, lingerie chest, staten island, just the woods, painted furnitureShades of gray painted vintage lingerie chest by Just the Woods
