Side Table Gets a Whismsical Update!



Don't you just hate it when you forget the "Before" pictures?  
Not to worry this time... there must be thousands of this type nightstand so I found a picture online!  
Before
AFTER!
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on the body of the piece.  Provence for the sides and Old Ochre for the top and drawers. 


Then I painted the design free-hand using acrylic paints in various colors.



I removed the original hardware and replaced it with crystal knobs with a metal bobeche .  




Clear wax protects the finish but doesn't dull the colors.

I have lots of projects I haven't posted.
Maybe I'll catch up one day.
Nah... probably not!  :-)

Take care my blogland friends!
