Furniture Update

This chest of drawers followed me through post-college internships into my new apartment about a year ago. Sometime a few decades back, my grandfather painted it yellow-green and antiqued it with gold. What was once very beautiful and trendy (I'm sure) was a little too retro, even for me. So for the new apartment, it got some new hardware and a coat of black satin paint.

Minus the fear I was sanding off lead paint (straight into my lungs), it was an easy process.

And the best part - if you're totally digging on the old handles - I found those exact ones at Home Depot. STILL.
