This chest I built out of Popular to match a 1940’s bed for my Daughter it was a good match in color as well as it is somewhat dated, The Picture on top was taken somewhere around 1945. There is a little stress mark’s on one of the Pictures; I also did a night stand as well. Finish is a Blended stain with Poly Top Coats.

Very nice chest of drawers. I bet your daughter is quite pleased with this.

Thank you for your kind comments, there is not much demand for the forties reproduction and they are hard to find a match so, I just build her a Chest to match the bed, and yes she was well pleased. May your day be Blessed O’Neal

Very nice chest of drawers it looks great and the colour and finish helps give it that aged look. Thanks for sharing.
