This is a wonderful antique piece that I got a couple months ago. The entire thing was painted a rather dingy yellow. I sanded the top to reveal the gorgeous chestnut wood, and then painted the case with a crisp bright white. The original brass drawer pulls were perfect, and had the most wonderful verdigris/patina so I left them just as they were. I love this piece, it's a wrench to let this one go, but I don't have a spot for it.
I forgot to take before pictures, but here are a bunch of 'after' pics.
