One night a while back I decided it was finally time to tackle my little chest of drawers in the living room. When I get the urge to do something I want to finish it immediately so I always end up using just whatever I have on hand and this was no different.
I started with this below, which had previously been painted all white and had a couple broken handles.
I liked how the white paint had chipped and distressed itself over time and didn't want to loose all of that, so I only painted the drawers.
I used lavender and dark blue acrylic paint I had on hand.
I did one coat of lavender paint, followed by a coat of the deep blue paint. I then sanded the blue paint on the edges here and there to show touches of the lavender underneath.
I replaced the original handles with the brown ones above.
I wanted the handles to pop a bit so I used some white Valspar paint leftover from my kitchen cabinets and did one light stroke across the top highlighting the raised parts of the design.
I let the paint sit for about 15 seconds then used a towel to rub off the excess paint.
Also, I alternated the handles back and forth, with some facing up and some facing down.

I've also added a couple new things to the shop.
