This little petite chest is small and perfectly suited to be used as a nightstand, end table…….or you know? That little wall at the end of the hallway that needs just a little something to catch your eye and draw you in? This is that little eye catcher.
I am in the middle of working on a collection of neutral colored pieces right now and It has been a while since I have done a true black piece. I have been holding onto these beautiful monarch butterfly knobs for a while now and knew immediately that these beauties were perfect for the size and color of this design. I also had this beautiful butterfly wallpaper and so naturally it completed my plans for this piece.
I painted this piece with black milk paint, and then I coated it with four coats of water based polyurethane so it has a really shiny finish over the rustic milk paint. I love the rustic mixed with the shine…..it is so unexpected and right.
