I am working on my project list since the start of this new year and getting this chest ready for use was on my list so my list is down 2 projects now
I bought this wonderful french provincial chest at a indoor flea market back last summer . It was in great shape and a heavy chest however it was scuffed up where someone had used a packing tape or duct tape probably while moving . Anyway I thought I have some great silver paint and will touch it up.
This paint I have goes on better than any paint I have ever bought so went over the entire chest. You can see here the tape marks and also I changed the top drawer pull or a more ornate one. Also the chest was $30.
You can see where the tape was
before with streaks
This is the drawer pull I used for the top drawer since there was only 3 matching pulls
This is the paint I used I bought it at a local paint store and love it . It was $38. a quart and goes on like soft butter and never streaks also drys very quick
I will use it in the studio, more than likely will have it full of card stock material, I have 2 large plastic tubs of valentine card making supplies that will fill these drawers
If it was not already painted silver I would have painted it white to match all my other chests in the studio
OK on to my next project now and I want to say Thank you for following my projects as I go through them
also is anyone besides me having trouble leaving comments on certain blogs? some blogs I can't even pull up? maybe blogger is having trouble again?
