Pale green herringbone design tall MCM chest of drawers
This six-drawer chest of drawers was refinished with a pale mint green geometric design to echo its Modernist heritage. The random herringbone design is a one-off as it's was created by hand, rather than with a stencil and was designed with this piece in mind.
The original MCM piece was in a sound and solid state but the old finish and veneer had been damaged over the years. The piece was completely stripped and the to the sides, top, legs and edges refinished with a deep walnut stain, while the wood that was salvaged to the drawer fronts was left natural with it's lovely stripey grain showing.
The whole piece was then finished in a satin finish top coat to enhance the wood and protect the design.
