Ok! Two posts in a week(ish) timeframe… not too shabby for little me! Let’s hop to it then and get to business…
I purchased this chest of drawers for a song. For real – I think I actually sang when I found it. It was structurally sound, but had some exterior cosmetic issues. Some scratches and gouges in the drawer fronts, the rear caster wheels were broken. The fact that it was on casters made me sing again – made moving it so much easier. But nothing a little paint and repurposed wheels couldn’t fix. (I used the wheels from an old rolling cabinet TV.)
I painted in a mix of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Shutter Grey and Flow Blue, creating a wonderful color that looks different depending on the lighting – more grey sometimes, more cornflower blue others. But always pretty! For the highlighted areas, I mixed some white acrylic paint with the remaining milk paint. Chipped off the natural chipping areas with the scraper, sanded down to blend the sudden contrast in the highlighted areas, sealed with clear wax and done! (That makes it sound so easy, doesn’t it?…)
