Jewelry Armoire Makeover I did awhile back with Chalk Paint and it turned out so great so I wanted to share with you! My client wanted a colorful piece with a range of blue shades.
Annie Sloan Napoleonic Blue and custom mixed several ranges of the shade, along with Old Violet which has the violet blue underdones down to Duck Egg which is more of a neutral.
With so much color, I decided to leave the drawer pulls in their original antiqued brass state. Once I distressed the drawer edges, the original brown coming through went nicely with the drawer pulls. Although many times I do paint and distress drawer pulls because, of course, you can paint metal with Chalk Paint and it will not scratch off.
paint glaze that I mixed up myself using Pure White Chalk Paint and then did some dry brushing on the drawers with Old White for a really fun distressed look and to pull all the shades together.
As always, I sealed the piece with Staples Clear Wax. I don't buff much because I like a matte finish, but Staples is the wax used by most Bowling Alleys on their lanes, so you know that it will withstand wear and tear for many years to come!
It was an awesome makeover on the old boring brown piece, don't you think?
