I have been holding on this really cool mid-century piece for quite some time, and I knew I wanted to make it unique. The actual wood had some unique lines.
The hardware was also unique, so I didn’t want to spray them. All I did was shine them up! I decided to use two Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors Coco & Versailles, pictured below. However, the colors depicted on the website look NOTHING like in real life.
I liked the grain of the wood on the drawers that looked like a checkerboard pattern. I taped it off, and alternated the colors.
The top also had some unique outlining. I painted the outside Versailles, and the inside Coco, I hand painted over the black outline that was originally there so it could be seen better.
After I painted all of it, I sealed it with poly acrylic. I have to say it is so much easier and has a much better sheen that putting on the wax and buffing it. I slapped on the hardware again, and here was the finished product!
