Unfortunately my camera doesn't capture the color very
My steps were: sanding, priming, first coat, another light sanding, final coat, distressing.
I decided to add an unexpected element by painting one of the inside inset panels with chalkboard paint. On a side note I'm really bothered by that right drawer handle sticking up. Excuse me while I go fix that.
Now I need to figure out what to do on top. The room this is in has two story ceilings. I have always had a hard time knowing what to do there.
The total work time on this project was probably 3.5-4 hours. But I worked on it over a few days. I left it right where it is now and just lifted the legs to scoot a drop cloth underneath. I did remove the drawers and the hardware on the drawers. I had hoped to find a knob for the doors to compliment the hardware on the drawers. Still looking.
Overall I am really happy with it. It is eye-catching, a focal point, it's decorative and I just love the splash of blue in our family room.
