Two Tone Drawers (Again!)

Ok, so I like two tone! After the two tone coffee table and two tone drop leaf table I've decided I really like the style and I'm just going with it!

I found this chest of drawers on an expedition with my sister. The drawers caught my eye - but I also love that they are so solid and would work as a bedside table / nightstand as well as a set of drawers or even an end table (how great would the storage be in the lounge room / living room, for all those remotes, cords and general bits and pieces?)

There was not alot wrong with this piece of furniture to start with - I just couldn't imagine such a dark piece working in many homes.

But with a bright white frame I think it changes it's personality completely. I also gave the drawer fronts another coat of stain and varnish, to give them a bit of shine. This guy is heading with me to Avoca Beachside Markets.
