Christmas Came Early!

Hello everyone!

I was just so excited and HAD to share my newest piece of furniture for my foyer.  I found this antique solid pine chest of drawers at a consignment shop.  I had a sizable credit that paid for most of it.  So, it just happened to come home with me as an early Christmas present. 

What do you think?



Remember, I used to have a small slip covered chair in here.  Now I have this gorgeous chest (with added storage).


Sorry, if I sound a little giddy, but I am!


I brought it home and instantly decorated it for Christmas!  I stored the little table, that was in here, in the basement for the time being.  It will come back out after the Christmas tree is put away. 


I have a thing for antique chest of drawers (if you haven't noticed by now).  Lets see, I have one in my sitting room, one in my family room, one in my bedroom and NOW one in my foyer!


This one WILL NOT be painted like the others though!  No sirree!  This one has a beautiful golden patina and I love it just the way it is. 

OK, now I'm going to go blog hopping.  I have been so busy this weekend and I've missed visiting everyone.

Thanks for stopping by!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Keeping secrets from me, huh? I love it. Good thing I didn't see it first. That will look great after Christmas with different vignettes you create.

I love your new old pine chest. And, that basket on the wall is great too. If I could start over and if cost were of no concern I would want a lot of antique pine.

How pretty Kelly. You can never have too much storage. I have chests everywhere and they are all full..maybe I'll do some cleaning out this spring and get rid of some stuff.

Merry Christmas!!

I love it! It is gorgeous and it fits there just perfect.
I have a chest much like it that I bought at an estate sale years ago...altho I love painted furniture, my chest, too, has such pretty wood that I never ever would paint it.
Merry Christmas...

Hi Kelly,
What a great early Christmas present. Such a useful one, just think of all the stuff you can keep in those good sized drawers...
The patina is such a nice warm tone and looks great against your hardwood floor!
Enjoy!
All the Best,

Oh Kelly it's perfect! Great purchase. I would love to have a chest of drawers in my living room. I have this one wall that needs some help. Can't get over the patina on yours. I agree that you shouldn't paint it. Enjoy!

Pondside said...

I have a thing for old chests of drawers and blanket boxes. I'm glad you're not going to paint this one - you're right about the lovely patina. That little chest was made for that nook under your stairs.

Babs said...

Kelly, I don't blame you! I'd be giddy too if I found a pine chest that beautiful. You hit the jackpot.. Merry Christmas! It looks gorgeous the way you decorated it,too.

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Oh I LOVE IT Kelly, and you found the perfect spot for it!! Love the pretty vignette on top too! Have a great week, Martina

Andrea said...

I LOVE it!!! I've been searching high and low for the exact type of chest to use as a bedside table. I looooove the tone of wood. I've been loving that sort of rustic pine wood tone lately! Great find!

Rosemary@villabarnes said...

I love the natural pine. This is a beautiful piece Kelly. Nice present.

Kelly, This is a beautiful piece of furniture! It looks like it belongs right there in your foyer, and I love the simple yet stunning vingette you have displayed . I love the basket hanging on the wall too with just the simple piece of greenery hanging over the edge. Merry Christmas

Your house looks so so so pretty! I love the white slip covers and your wood floors. BTW The burlap wreaths are EASY! They go with your house too.
