Here's another piece that showed up on my sidewalk
courtesy of Molly Buford!
It was an old family piece,
and a relative wanted to just throw it out.
Molly said, NO!!!!
I'll take it to Sheila!
God Bless her!
A short old oak chest....
With a few issues,
but so what!
I slapped on some wood putty where the top had veneer problems,
and then sanded it smooth.
I decided on Annie Sloan's Chalkpaint in EMPEROR'S SILK....
a nice, rich chinese red.
The beauty of this paint...........
is that NO prepwork is necessary!
You just wipe it off a bit, and start painting...
Here it is with two coats...
And here it is after I distress sanded,
and added waxes:
First clear and then dark.
See all the crusty little edges?
I'm calling her "Molly B."
Isn't she sassy?
