I recently bought this chest from a friend. I think it was once a music box of some type. There are 3 doors on the front, the top door drops down and the bottom two open traditionally. The top of the chest opens upright. He used it for a "bar"and it is a perfect piece for just that. It would also be great storage in a bedroom or bathroom for linens.
But it needed an update!
I painted it in white chalk paint and glazed it in a clear glaze mixed with black paint. It was distressed before glazing.
I also updated the knobs:

It is a sturdy piece of furniture that has been brought back to life with a little love, elbow grease and paint!
