Chrome & Red Industrial Chest of Drawers

This chest of drawers is JUICED!  No need to test it for steroids - it's full of them.

It all started as a test for using metallic paint on furniture.  I think it worked!  I removed the top drawer because it was beyond reasonable repair.  I also made the second drawer fixed so it could be used for display of themed vintage components.  I really didn't want to give up my "American Ironer" emblem but this was the best piece for it.

I used Annie Sloan paint on the sides and then accented the handles.  The vintage gym locker baskets got a touch of paint to tie them in more with the design.

Just like the nightstand I recently completed, this piece was perfect for another vintage vanity light application.

I flushed out the interior of the top drawer compartment with new custom sides and a floor and covered it with punched metal sheets so that the baskets wouldn't scratch things up.

This custom item, along with my other creations, is available in the GadgetSponge Etsy Shop and at Timeline Antiques in Shreveport, LA!
