I found this at a yard sale for $5, like most of my project finds. After another late night paint fest with a bottle of Coca-Cola, here's what happened! I've been having a lot of fun with some new techniques. My favorite so far has been Valspar's antiquing glaze. I seem to be using it on everything. Add in some of my fav green and chalkboard paint and voila'!
I'm using Valspar paint+primer. A quart is about $17, which is pretty pricy for paint, but I can get up to 4 projects out of a quart so it works out well. I always tape of the edges and around the drawer fronts because it just gives it a better look.. Not to mention paint drips drive me crazy! After I painted it green I antiqued it, waxed it, and then I taped off the top so I could shoot it with a can of chalkboard spraypaint.
My kids loved this and so did I, until I kept tripping over it in the entryway. It was just too low and stuck out too far. So it hit Craigslist and it's gone :-(.
Update: I found some before pics. This was fugly!
