I loved the color of the clock so much (from this post) that I decided to add it to the chest of drawers in my foyer too. However, I didn't really paint the whole thing. I just dry brushed the blue paint over the grey so it instantly gave it an aged look. No wax was necessary.
Here is the before:
This chest has been through many transformations. It started out as a plain pine chest. Then I painted it blue and the knobs white. But, the blue was more blue than I cared for, so I painted it grey (to match my other furniture pieces). Now, I've dry brushed a light blue all over it so it's a subtle change.
This picture shows the color a bit better.
By simply dry brushing it on, I was able to do it quickly using some of the paint that I had left over. It dried almost instantly too!
I styled the top by adding some faux lilacs in galvanized buckets.
The paint that I used was from Farmhouse Paint and the color is blue toile. I dry brushed that over a grey paint from Sherwin Williams called Fawn Brindle.
Hope you all have a great weekend planned! I can't believe there is only one more week of school until summer break. So, I better enjoy a quiet house while I still can!
Thanks for stopping by!
