LOVE!! I'm already having seperation anxiety on selling this piece. It was white to start. I painted the dresser in Annie Sloan Primer Red & just painted the drawer fronts Old White. I painted the mirror & frame in Old White. I traced an image onto the drawer fronts & then used the Primer Red, distressed it all clear & dark waxed. The knobs were on it & new so I just kept them :-)
Gorgeous antique buffet, painted in Annie Sloan's Graphite chalk paint with dark wax. Copper pulls pop against this color, don't you think?! www.atlantashabbychic.blogspot.com www.facebook.com/atlantashabbychic
Lady ButterbugI painted and glazed the hardware too. Next Clear Wax each side and paint on the glaze. Insert the drawers into the desk, Clear Wax,and paint on glaze. Make sure all the drawers have a similar glazed look.Allow the glaze to dry overnight and polish with a soft rag.
A thrift store desk that had a broken drawer and peeling veneer and crap stuck to desktop was transformed with CeCe Caldwell paint in Santa Fe Turquoise and heavily distressed and waxed. The pulls were perfect! I decided to ditch having a new drawer front made and used an old wire basket for visual interest! I love it!
