Here's an advertisement for a chifferobe from 1912. It has a very similar design as my project.

1912 Advertisement of a chifferobe.


The paint colors are Country Grey and Old White.

Gentlemen's Chifferobe refinished in Country Grey & Old White (ASCP)

A worn and aged finish with light distressing.

Old White on the top, exterior panels, and interior cupboards and drawers.
New replacement knobs for the cupboard doors.

The knobs I selected were chosen to give
a slightly more feminine feel to the piece.

The drawer pulls are little more ornate and larger
than the originals, but the scale still works.

The pull itself is painted in Country Grey with hints of Old White. I dry brushed the back plate with Country Grey followed by a light dry brush of Old White.

The paint treatment on the pulls was
 chosen to give a very subtle contrast.

The interior was a tough job, but I think it was worth it.

Even more storage in the small cupboard area.

Thanks for stopping by.
