Before and After: French Modern Louis XVI Style Striped Chest of Drawers


This fabulous find is from an old antique store.  She's a vintage beauty!  Great lines, solid wood!

 Gorgeous Acanthus Leaf Hardware!
 I started with a a coat of Chalk Paint in Old White on the Cabinet and all the drawers.
 The front panels and the inside of the drawers were painted in Duck Egg Blue.  I lined them up to guild silver stripes out of gilding wax.  I taped off the stripes using painters tape.
 The hardware received some silver gilding as well!  So pretty!
 Finished the entire thing of with a coat of clear wax.


  1. This is beautiful, Kimberly! I love how you used the gilding wax to make the stripes on the drawers. Found you from your towels on The Graphics Fairy blog. Now following!: )

  2. Me too! You are a great inspiration!
