Apothecary Chests were originally used by medical professionals who dispensed medicine to physicians, surgeons and patients. We now call them pharmacists. These chests are made up of small drawers to which were used to store medicine. Today it would be ideal for the collector at heart. Many people use these chests in their entrance way, and as accent furniture in living rooms.
Consider using brushed rubbed bronze spray paint on your antique or vintage hardware which gives a great contrast against white paint. Like the piece above, add some rusty appliques to your furniture giving your chest that beautiful antique appearance that you see in furniture from the past.
