The little chest on the right wall has been in my family ever since I can remember and it's been a multitude of colors. Several years ago I stripped it and never did get around to painting it. I changed the hardware and that's how it sat until a few months ago, when I "got in the mood" to paint it. I painted it the red color I have on my kitchen and dining room walls. Once painted I put a very thin glaze of black paint over the entire surface and put it on heavier in cracks, crevises and edges. I think it turned out pretty good....what do YOU think?
