This piece of furniture comes from the 20’s. It is quite common in this part of the world. It is oak with raised panels- very square shaped- I come across a lot of furniture in this style while on my searches.
I am a bit stumped as to what it may have been used for. There are two doors on the front and a door on either side- four doors for such a small piece. It doesn’t have any signs that may indicate that it was part of a larger piece- and there is a hole on the side.
I painted using Annie Sloan’s Grey Linen- great colour. This colour seems to change slightly depending on what is under it. I painted a table with this same colour and the table is a slightly lighter shade.
I painted the inset frame Old White and gave it a good distressing followed by wax and buffing.
I kept the little knobs- they are so cute! I just wiped some bronze antiquing wax over them and the hinges as well. I decoupaged decorative paper inside- it is not dry in these photos so it looks a little sloppy.
Here is the side with the hole in it….makes me wonder!
