Well, I haven't completed everything from the previous posting on the "junk pile", but I couldn't resist pulling this beauty out of another pile to work on first. Self discipline can be a problem with me...
This is how she started out...boring brown wood. NOT the nice graining that I wouldn't dare paint over, but more like a plywood look to me. The drawers are solid oak with this not-so-special veneer.
Oh, yes....she needed help.
I custom mixed paint to make this pale blue. I used MyColor paint in Blue Haze and White.
I gave her several coats of the blue then dry-brushed the details in white. Doesn't the end result remind you of Wedgewood Blue Jasper?
Finally, a couple of coats of clear wax gave her the final glow. Top knobs were replaced with these sweet porcelain ones. Original knobs were given a quick swipe with blue and white paint.
I'm thinking this is my favorite project so far.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the assistance of my side-kick, Molly.
Unfortunately, she was more interested in getting to know the kitty on the other side than helping me out. :)
