This little antique piece
was a hot mess needed a little T.L.C. before it could be painted. The back had fallen off somewhere in time and I'm pretty sure it had been the home for a scary critter.
scrubbed the crap out of it carefully cleaned the wood and went to work. Mr. Vintage Fragment made the repairs and installed a new backing board.
She's painted in Old White and Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint. I'm completely smitten with the Duck Egg Blue Color these days.
This fabulous find is from an old antique store. She's a vintage beauty! Great lines, solid wood!
Gorgeous Acanthus Leaf Hardware!
I started with a a coat of Chalk Paint in Old White on the Cabinet and all the drawers.
The front panels and the inside of the drawers were painted in Duck Egg Blue. I lined them up to guild silver stripes out of gilding wax. I taped off the stripes using painters tape.
The hardware received some silver gilding as well! So pretty!
Finished the entire thing of with a coat of clear wax.
