Awhile back I found a throw away chest of drawers and it has been sitting in the back of my workshop waiting for some help.
It had spiders and grunge every place and was basically falling apart. Working with Krista ( my intern), we strengthened the chest and cleaned it up. I thought it would look good with an ombre look in aqua. I pulled out Jaded Rooster by The Urban Rooster and mixed it with some Marshmallow Cream and created an aqua color. We painted the bottom drawer in the aqua and then for the next drawers just added more white to the aqua to lighten it up. The base of the chest was painted in the middle aqua color. After the paint dried I sanded the edges to distress it. The last step was to seal it with AS clear wax and add the knobs.
|I left the roughness of the drawers for character|
|I love both the wood and white showing|
This chest found a new home after an hour of being posted!
