You know, my 'they will be mine no matter what!" They are great new nightstands. But on a side note, I may repaint my bedroom thus delaying my decision on how to paint my french lovelies. I digressed, back to the redo at hand. So, it left this chest from Homegoods unneeded in the bedroom.
Good thing I hadn't painted it yet. Not really what I care for but I love the shape. I decided I would use some chalk paint to spruce it up. I used french linen as a base coat. Then, I tried to thin down old white to make a wash. I decided that it was too much all over. So, I just left the top that way. So what to do with the bottom now? Of course, duck egg blue! Then, you know the story. Apply clear wax. It needed a little extra something. So, I added dark wax too. A little sanding here and there. I really love how it turned out!
I am not crazy about the original handles but I am sure I will tone them down somehow. I just had to share it with you. Again the before to after:
Quite a difference right?!
