I sanded the top down and filled the holes where the mirror was supposed to attach. I used Cece Caldwell Simply White Chalk Paint on the lower portion and for the first time ever, I tried my hand at glazing. I used Ralph Lauren Tea Stain Glaze. Glazing is a lot more difficult than I would have thought, but I think that for my first time, it turned out okay. Trying to avoid hard lines was the hardest part. I waxed it with Annie Sloan Clear Wax.
Another first for me was using Webster's Chalk Paint powder. I mixed it with Behr French Roast. I was really happy with the way that it went on. NO BRUSH MARKS! I had to add a little more powder than the package suggested, but I love this color, so it was okay with me. I distressed and waxed again.
This is what it looks like so far...
I am still waiting for the glaze to dry on the drawer so I can wax it and finish her up. I am thinking of dark waxing the top as well. Let me know what you think! Thanks for stopping by!
