Chest of drawers

Chest of drawersChest of drawers made for my kid. Started this with the plan to paint the entire thing. My wife had other ideas though after the carcass was complete. She wanted it stained but I used oak ply on the sides and cheap pine for the legs. Staining wasn't an option. I pivoted though to make her happy and went with solid red oak on the top and drawer faces. Min wax cherry get stain and GF HP semi gloss for the finish. The painted portions are GF lamp black milk paint. I love the finish of the milk paint. It's expensive but worth it. I'm happy with the finished product, but more importantly so is the wife. This is the first piece that I would consider furniture other than tables. Now I have to build a matching nightstand for this one and two more sets just like it.
