I purchased this chest at at a thrift store years ago and always liked the swirl side decorative pieces, I have forgotten what it looked like when I got it. Sure a wood finish.
I got the mirror separate at a sale for $20 I do remember that. I feel like when you get something that reasonable of a price you can afford to paint it or whatever and not much money lost if you don't like it. But I like painted furniture
Here is my finished baby blue chest/buffet and mirror, my kitchen is white walls however this picture shows a yellow tint. I took it with my cell phone
When I painted this yellow I sanded it to look worn in places and always like that look.Funny story I had an electrician in my kitchen once to wire up a chandelier and he said Jan that piece really needs to be painted it looks ruff. I told him I made it look like that, he just didn't get that shabby chic look at all.
Below is the swirl legs I like
I still may take some silver paint and highlight the flower medallions on the mirror. Or should I leave it all blue? This picture is when I was painting it you can see the yellow peeking through before I had it all done. I got it all painted in about an hour and half.
