This was an unloved large piece of brown furniture that needed some tlc.
As soon as I got my hands on it I gave all the hardware some elbow grease and immediately could see how fabulous this piece was going to look.
I began with a few coats of Earth Stone chalk paint on the exterior, a lovely brown/grey colour.
Then I applied a coat of clear wax.
On top of that I painted a mixture of diluted pale grey chalk paint which was then wiped off with a clean cloth to create a layered effect and the whole piece was protected again with clear wax and given a distressed finish.
The interior I painted using both Graphite and Nearly Black chalk paints.
This paintwork was protected with dark wax and lightly distressed.
A wonderful piece with oodles of storage that is both practical and beautiful.
