Having spent 5 days in NY, I was ready to get my hands back into some paint! I bought this chest from a gal who I also got my end table I painted Antibes Green. You can see that post here.
I loved that it is a small piece and has the cutest little wheels on it! She had painted it purple but left the top stained.
I had so much fun figuring out what I wanted to do with it!
I started by using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White for the body & mixing Old White & Antibes Green until I got a soft minty color for the drawer fronts & top.
I then applied a stencil, and sprayed it with Krylon Classic Gray spray paint.
I waited until after one coat of Annie Sloan Clear Wax to sand & distress it. Something I learned in my ASCP workshop I attended over the weekend. (I will be posting about that in a day or 2).
Check back, as I will have LOTS of photo & great info from that workshop!
By waxing it first, you can eliminate all the chalk dust that gets everywhere! I just made sure I applied a 2nd coat of wax, this time mixing the clear & dark wax.
I decided to randomly place the stencil on the chest, even wrapping it around one side. I wanted the whole thing, including the stencil to have an aged look to it.
