Graphic Drawers

Decorate a chest of drawers with typography.

British paint authority Annie Sloan had this handmade piece of furniture in her studio for years, and finally decided to put it to use in her home. She started by repainting the piece in white and grey, then tapped into the typography trend, using a stencil-like method to add lines from James Joyce's Ulysses onto each drawer.
