The top drawer is so cute... its actually a little small for the opening. I wonder what this chest was used for, because its very unique.
This little brass plate had been painted over, so as I sanded this piece, I uncovered this piece of bling.
Tiny handle fits this tiny drawer.
Rusty handles.... so awesome that they were all there when I found this piece.

While browsing at one of our regional antique shows, I found this small chest Gotta love what an electric sander can do !  Being a dealer, I knew it could sell right away, but I had to keep this one for myself:)
