Before & After: Heirloom Chest

We’re loving the transformation of this chest by Stylish Patina fan Kena!

“I am a DIY Fanatic for sure! I have lived in the Northern Virginia area since 1991, and am currently residing in Alexandria. I love to paint vintage, antiques, or heirloom furnishings,” says Kena.

“Here’s a bombe chest that was passed down to a friend, it was too dark, did not work well with their current decor, and visually took up to much space. So, I got to work on making a new favorite of theirs. This was painted in Benjamin Moore’s SeaGlass, glazed with a custom mix of General Finishes glazes, and sealed to make sure it would last for decades. I’d rather see a piece rescued and refurbished than tossed out, plus it has special meaning to the family. Win win!” says Kena.

We couldn’t agree more, Kena!

Here’s the before photo of the heirloom bombe chest.

And, here is the after shot of Kena’s project.
