My new "chest"

Materials: Vestby chest of drawers, paint

Description: I dismantled the old Vestby and got rid of the plastic sheets. Painted the frame with white acrylic paint, rebuilt the frame, added 3 plywood shelves and a little “box” on the top shelf for the everyday use things, like mobiles and keys.
