Hello! Tonight I have another 'sweet pea' green project to show you...what can I say, I LOVE this colour and I think it suits this project, and my signature style, perfectly.
I found these drawers earlier this week when I was picking up a desk I found for my son. The desk has a hutch on it and was so big I had to drive home with the hutch part tied to my roof rack - but was I going to let that stop me doing a round of the furniture pickings while I was there? Of course not, I'm not stupid ;) That is how I scored this beauty, and also a gorgeous retro duchess. You should never pass up an opportunity to have a look :)
I just had to make two trips to the op shop that day...after I nabbed my poor neighbour man from across the road to help me unload the first lot!
One drawer needed a bit of repair work and the top had an ink stain on it, so after fixing those things I gave it two coats of the green mix (ASCP in Duck Egg + Antibes Green).
A bit of distressing was followed by a clear wax then dark - I haven't been using dark wax for antiquing as much as I used to, but for this piece I felt the colour and shape really warranted it.
Here's how it turned out:
This photo shows how shiny the wax finish is...you can see reflections on the top :)
This piece is for sale; please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
