I got so tired of having to move around this guy in the garage, that I finally made the effort to paint it. I got it in January,,,,,,of 2013.
Well, I didn't want to rush it.
I was saving it for something special. I like the standard white. But sometimes you just have to try something different.
My own custom color made into chalk paint. I used 3 different shades.
The 3rd and 5th drawers are painted and sanded. Nothing else. The top two had my black glazing and dark wax. Quite the diff eh?
And of course my signature two-tone look.
I love the dark walnut top with this color.
Ah, this hardware. God I hate doing lots of hardware. Each handle is
3 separate pieces. That's 30, if you don't feel like doing some math. Bad enough having to remove all of it let alone painting it with gray chalk
paint, dark wax, buffing and then silver gilding wax. Oh, and a sealer.
I just had to add some coordinating fabric to line the top drawer!
