Vintage Abernathy Furniture Co. chest

A lot of the vintage pieces we acquire, we end up re-working or repainting.  THIS one we pretty much left ‘as is’. 

Well, we fixed it up a little bit so it was ready to use by adding new knobs (since it didn’t have enough of them) and we added a new backing since that was missing.

But we didn’t touch the paint.  The patina was just too charming.  A few spots have a tiny bit of yellow and green paint showing through the white; and the top is fairly scratched up and has a few stains.

The drawers are in perfect shape and not even the slightest hint of that ‘old furniture smell’ that is so hard to get rid of!  And here she is all prettied up with her new knobs and ready for a new home!
