Here is another find from the Santa Cruz Flea Market. I found this sort of beautiful buffet/dresser at one of my favorite venders stalls and had to have it. It needed some work, but I knew it would look good soon.
As I was driving home I pictured the piece in a soft grey and white. I mixed up a nice grey color that had blue undertones from my stash of Oooopsie paint ( my favorite free kind!) and then made it into chalk paint with Plaster of Paris. After painting the buffet/dresser in grey and white I painted on a wash of watery Coco brown, wet distressed and waxed.
The front details did even get noticed until the paint was applied. Now its a great feature.
