I got this antique empire mahogany chest about two weeks ago and refinished it custom for a client. They'll be using it as a server in the kitchen of their antique home. I absolutely adore this idea! We went with a warm red, distressed and dark waxed, and I swapped the drawer pulls out for stained turned wood knobs. I think it's so handsome and timelessly elegant. I can't wait to see it in her kitchen!
