I picked up this little chest on Thursday & just couldn't wait to paint it. My new chalk paint arrived on Wednesday & it was perfect for this piece. This poor little chest was so dirty & neglected, it really needed some love. It had Brian's name scratched on top (I wonder if he got in trouble for that) and it was sooo dirty! I had to clean it 3 times with TSP!! I stripped the top & stained it dark walnut. I dry brushed 2 layers of Provence chalk paint. After distressing, I used dark wax. I am so loving this little guy! I plan on using it at a craft fair in August to display baby afghans my mom is making. After that it will be looking for a new home (maybe it will find one at the fair).
