I'm not sure how long this chest of drawers has been in my family, but at least as early as when my parents married in 1948.  I remember it being a nightstand in their bedroom when I was a little girl.  Then they bought a new bedroom set when I was 11 and I got it as a nightstand.  At that time, my mother used it to store her sewing notions in it.  When we broke up my parents house, I took this chest, put it in my sewing area and also used it to store notions.  
I have probably had it for the last ten years with grand plans to paint it.  Well, I finally got around to doing just that.  Three years ago I found button knobs and thought they would be perfect for the chest.  Last week I painted it and put on the new knobs.  Voila!  New life for an old chest of drawers.  It's now back in my Lady Cave proudly holding notions again. I'm sure Mom would approve.

I have that exact same chest (also in the sewing room) and thought about changing the knobs to something bright and fun but never considered painting the entire cabinet. Perhaps I will now!

Wow! What a transformation. Would not have recognized it. Yes, Mom would approve.
