Little Green Chest

This little chest of drawers has been sitting in the back of my workshop covered by other things for a long time and I finally got around to doing something with it.
Before:
The chest of drawers is very sturdy and well made, but needed a makeover so I pulled out Avocado by  The Urban Rooster  and started the transformation.  After 2 coats of paint, I sealed the little chest with tung oil/dark wax and it became a cheerful cutie.
