Another old purchase updated – this time a little chest of drawers that I bought from Lakeland Ltd around 15-20 years ago.
Pretty little chest but I’d tired of the dark brown wood, so it’s my latest victim. I apologise for forgetting (again) to take a before photo, but I did find an image online of something with a similar finish and with the same little matching brown knobs that this had.
I gave this a base coat of Chateau Grey, and when that was dry, I applied a colourwash using a very watery coat of Paris Grey. Once fully dried, I “wet distressed” it by rubbing areas with a wet cloth. Finally, finished off with Annie Sloan’s White Wax and some pretty little handles that I found on Ebay (where else?!).
