Painting pine furniture with Duck Egg Blue paint and shabbying it up to give it that country feel is a real pleasure!
Here's the before pic:
This is a sturdy little chest of drawers, the handles have been changed at some point and it's pretty scuffed up - but not in a good way!
I painted all over (including the back) using Autentico's Troubled Waters - which is that veeeery French yummy grey blue colour. Then gave it some violent distressing with sandpaper and waxed to finish.
There's always more :-) I replaced the old handles with one of my favourite ceramic 'bee design' drawer pulls. I also painted the inside of the drawers in Violet Grey and finished with a little bit of gilding around the drawer tops.
I want to keep this French Country style, the legs are so pretty.
All the surfaces have been given a couple of coats of clear wax to seal and protect.
Tres jolie :-)
