Here is the before.
This one was in much better condition than the smaller one. I started off by sanding the whole thing. The finish was kinda chipping off, so I made sure to sand it really well.
Here is the after.
I LOVEEEEE how it turned out. I used an oops paint that I found at Home Depot. It was this gorgeous blue/grey color. It had really great coverage, so I just had to use one coat and then I went over a couple of spots.
I'm sad that the pictures don't do this little chest justice. The finish is so awesome!
I knew that I wanted to glaze it, so I got out my glaze. While looking around, I came across a wood stain that I had. A light bulb went off, and I decided to mix the two together. The glaze that I used was a pearly iridescent finish, when I mixed the stain in, it turned a beautiful silvery/brown color!
I distressed it and then waxed and buffed.
I love this chest! If I had room in my house, I would find a spot for it. Unfortunately, it will go up for sale. I just hope it finds a great home!
