Would you believe me if I said I found this by the Sea...? No probably not. I found this at another thrift store, and it was not PRETTY! Ugly handles really dated the piece, BUT the top drawer was really nice even though it was, dare I say it plastic..... Oh the inhumanity of it all! How dare they.
The title is by the sea cause I painted it Annie Sloans Chalk Paint in Louie Blue. It is such a pretty color. It looks just like the ocean to me. I used the ASCP in Old White to dry brush over the top of the blue then sanded it all down. Which made it SO smooth! Its such a wonderful finish when sanded all over, its just like glass. Here is the after.
I distressed the medallions on the top drawer and painted the little handles white.
The other drawers got some knobs from Hobby Lobby that were brass and I painted them white with the chalk paint.
It looks like it washed up on the beach!
