Upcycled with Homemade Chalk Paint:D




A funky little chest I found at the thrift!
Parts are particle board (sides and front face)!
The drawers and front as well as the top are all wood?????

Strange combo, but nicely made all the same.
The piece is very heavy due to the particle board.

The handles were painted
with many coats of different colors paint
and
the drawers had been painted
primary colors at some point:(
Anyway.....
I like the way it turned out
and love the numbers
for a kids room!




Of course.....no before pics:(
Just take my word for it.....it was a mess!
This little chair was left to sell at 75% off
when we closed one of our booths
at the Antique Mall.

I couldn't let it go.....
Today I mixed some more Homemade Chalk Paint
using some of the left over bathroom paint
and a little Newport Tint
and got this lovely
Teal!

The chair turned out so cute
I can hardly part with it:)
I really don't have a place for it
but
I love the way the fabric goes
with the paint color!
Would be a darling desk or vanity chair.
