Antique Wardrobe

This piece came from an impromptu yard sale a few weeks back.  While driving down the road I saw the sign in the yard and did the drive by thing where you go reeeeealy slow and see if the people have any furniture.  You know you do it too.  How excited was I when I saw this piece near the end of the drive way.

I must add that it was near the end of the day and they were starting to pack up.  I grinded to a halt and jumped out of the car asking how much they wanted for it.

From the looks of the picture it appears as if I did a crazy thing by painting this beautiful wood. But in reality the wood was in bad shape and needed serious cleaning.

It was extremely difficult to get a good picture of what this color look like in real life.  It’s Wythe Blue by Benjamin Moore.
i Love the original hardware!
This is the truest pic I could get of the color.
