This sweet chest of drawers is all finished! Its original gorgeous burled wood drawers plus Annie Sloan Duck Egg chalk paint and gold details make this a stunner!
Here is the process! I first needed to sand back the top because at some point half of it had been painted white.
I didn’t need to sand it back completely, but just enough to make it smooth.
Once the top was smooth, I applied a coat of General Finishes High Performance topcoat in flat. This gave it a quick protective layer so the white wouldn’t bleed through into the paint application of Annie Sloan Duck Egg chalk paint.
For the drawers, I used Howard Feed-N-Wax to shine them up.
Below, you can see the difference in the polished drawer (bottom) to the top.
I used Royal Design Studio Stencils Antique Gold Stencil Creme on the drawer pulls.
I then used one coat of Duck Egg and another coat of a slightly watered down Duck Egg to give it a bit of interest with the color. It was sanded back with 220 grit sandpaper for a super smooth finish and the details were sanded back a bit more to show them off.
The paint was sealed in Annie Sloan clear wax and I added gold touches using the Antique Gold Stencil Creme.
Here is the after!
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
