Scored this little beat up gem off of CL. It looks good from afar, but trust me,
she showed her age up close.
I decided on a very shabby, anthro style.
Here's what I did:
The bottom of all of these were in pretty poor shape. I cut and replaced all of them.
This ancient insecticide bag I found stuck behind the drawers clued me into what all these tiny wormy-holes were! Um, ewwww. I filled them in, sanded, cleaned and painted all of the drawers.
my home made chalk paint. (2:1...dissolve PP in hot water before adding to paint. Smooth as silk)
I used a Dunn Edwards color called, "Antique White" in a Behr paint. I used maybe 1/4 of this!
This piece chipped to perfection. Very rustic. I used two coats of the white, sanded and finished
with a light paste wax. Here is one of the drawers with the new bottom. I was going to use
these cobalt knobs, but then I found some others on Amazon that went perfectly with the
blue and green! Love these! A little pricey, but I couldn't use the original
because three were missing.
The top was restained, tung oiled and dark paste wax.
I thought it went pretty well with the beachy subway art table. **They are both for sale** !!!
