Check Mate!

Standard

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!
