I just finished a beautiful piece of furniture, and I was thinking how great it would look in someones entry way. It would actually look great in MY entry way. :( I love this painted dressing chest, and it's one of those pieces that will be hard to let go. But let it go I must.
Here it is.
This great dressing chest with unique "Charles Knapp" scalloped, pegged dovetails was made between 1871-1900! I finished it with an antiqued, distressed paint finish using Annie Sloan "Provence", mellowed out with some "Paris Grey" and hand waxed it to perfection with clear and a little dark wax. It has major charm and character. Look at the fabulous details - the original, unique hardware, rarely found today, - the scalloped, pegged dovetail construction, the cute little drawers on top with a perfect little cubbie to drop your keys in. It would also look great in a kitchen (although Simon - my opinionated husband says no mirrors in the kitchen - I disagree!) dining area, or in your teenage daughters bedroom. A really great Valentines gift for your teenage daughter! It will add tons of charm where ever it is put.
Look at the details!
I love a great entry. It should be special, as it sets the tone for the whole house. It should also be functional. A great piece of furniture with some storage for all that clutter that accumulates by the front door is a really good thing. And a place to drop your keys and a mirror to check yourself as you are walking out the door are must haves.
I found some pictures of some amazing entry ways to inspire. Enjoy!
