I bought this side chest at GW for $20 it was plain, brown & boring...As usual I got so excited to paint it that I forgot the before picture.lol I painted it Aubusson blue( Annie Sloan) then took a hammer to it and banged it up pretty good:) distressed with sand paper here and there. Used walnut stain to give it a beautiful finish. I used a dry brush technique to add touches of rich gold as an accent. On the top of the chest I used a stencil to give it more personality and sanded lightly and finished with the walnut stain. I have seen some really pretty furniture at Arhaus and I have to admit that I think this piece could easily be in that store and I would have to pay $$$ lots of dollors for it. I love it!
