See, I told you I was back, this makes 2 posts in 2 days! Over the next few days, I thought I'd show you all some projects I've been working on for my space at Ginger & Spice. I'll also be keeping you posted on the kitchen redo!
I found the great chest of drawers a while ago. It sat and sat because I just wasn't sure what to do with it. The wood was really banged up and it needed to be painted, yet I hated to cover up all that great detail work.
Sorry about the before pics, I started in on this before I realized I forgot to take some pics. See all that great detail, not only in the carvings, but in the two toned wood?
I finally decided to just make two toned paint. I mixed up some ASCP Graphite and Old White and came up with this beautiful grayish blue color. I painted the whole thing in ASCP Old White, and, by hand, accented all the detail in my fancy new color. I then sanded and sanded to make it very distressed and chippy, then topped with a coat of wax.
Hope you like it!
