My mom has a chest of drawers just like that and she had the wood refinished...it is STUNNING. But if you're wanting to paint it I did a base coat of butter yellow and then 2 coats antique white over that. Then sand through around corners and knobs to let the yellow peep through, rub on/polish off bree wax. It turned out awesome.

That is positively gorgeous! I would paint it farmhouse red and glaze it with a rich black, after distressing it. Of course, I would paint everything in my house farmhouse red. :)
Ohhh that's super cool..I'm not a very daring person so I would have to look at it for a while.I like the suggestions so far, keep us posted on what you do. Enjoy the day~SueBee.
