Pretty painted chest

by Julie Nichols, February 24, 2014

Hi Friends I hope you had a  wonderful weekend.  
We spent most of ours outside enjoying the warm weather and sunshine.  

Today I am sharing this pretty painted chest.  

I love the size, it fits perfect in this tiny niche in the living room.  

It was made in the Orient and is hand painted and hand carved. 
I love all the pretty details.

I love the color of the drawers. There are eight of them lined with velvet.  Inside the pretty rose painted door are two shelves.  This small chest packs a lot of storage.

The top is painted with red roses

This piece of furniture has been moved around my house so many times I can't count them.  When it was in the kitchen I had cloth towels hidden in the drawers and when it was in the bedroom I kept jewelry inside.
Moving furniture from different rooms is a great way to refresh a space and doesn't cost a penny.
For now this chest is staying least for a little while.

It would be so wonderful if you would share it at my monthly blog party Every Room In The House. This month we're partying in The Living Room, and your post would be a great addition.
