This comes from a Craigslist listing in Wilmette
Spectacular and unusual pair of antique French Hand-painted corner cupboards originally built into the room design of a "Hotel Particulaire" or "staely home in Paris, France.
These cupboards were originally painted in France in the soft impressionist style and coloring often used in historic French interiors. The exterior coloring is a soft aqua blue with soft greens and blues in the impressionist style floral vine motif. The interiors of the cabinets and drawers are in their original French terra cotta pink color.
Each corner cabinets has an upper door with four shelves behind for dishes, books or clothing storage, and 4 beautifully designed pie-shaped drawers for miscellaneous serving items, candles, napkin rings, games, office items or clothing accessories; so many uses and so much storage!!
In addition to their wonderful size for use in corners, they can be positioned together to make a wonderful half circle armoire; yet another wonderful look for a variety of room designs.

Consider borrowing this idea from Jean Louis Deniot who designed a sculptural furniture line for Jean de Merry. This "Perolas" chest shows an array of artfully placed crystal knobs on a polished French lacquer seen on deringhall.com.
Get this look by simply filling in your dressers existing hardware holes with wood putty, and paint over the entire chest. The key to this look is to collect hardware in the same medium. Either go with all glass pulls in different shapes and styles, or go with a metal version such as all brass, or all chrome.
