Zebra Louis XIV Chest
Need a big wow for a room? Look no further than this Zebra Louis XIV style chest by Sultanchic. At first glance, I thought the finish was decorative painting, but info I found at The Yellow Door told me it was zebra-printed fabric with lacquer. Either way, it’s pretty stunning.
At a price tag of about $5600, I would probably choose to DIY a similarly styled item. The least expensive similarly-shaped item I could find online (in five minutes of searching) was this Louis XIV style nightstand at Old World Home Decor for $336, or this faux plantation 300 pound chest for $333.
If I were making this zebra chest, I would do a decorative paint job instead of adhering fabric because it just seems a lot simpler to me. I like the projector zebra-pattern technique Samantha used for her DIY zebra rug. I wonder how it would work on a 3D object? Even without a projector, it seems like a pattern you could sketch out if you were careful and referred to zebra photos (or zebra rug photos).
What do you think of this chest?
