This was a lovely piece of furniture to work on, with lots of drawers, and was the first piece I completed. A lot of it was trial and error as rubbing the top layer of paint needed a gentle touch, unlike working on a full size piece of furniture.
The paint I used was Rust Oleum Chalky Finish. The chest of drawers was painted with two coats of chalk paint, the first coat was Fire Brick with a top coat of Sage Green. The bottom draw was painted with a first coat of Sage Green. with a top coat of Fire Brick. I think it just balances out the colour and breaks up the green.
The biggest challenge was to find draw pulls to suit this furniture, they were made with pieces of a bracelet I took apart. They do hang down a bit on to the next draw, but I like the effect.
The drawers were sanded down and just painted at the front, and waxed around the sides. I then lined them with sticky back green felt, giving it a neat finish.
This is one of the legs, I was very pleased with paint effect on this, as it was so small. [ ………………]
