This beauty challenged me. I started off with a color scheme in mind....that didn't work.... so she sat for a few weeks.
I did a 360 on my first idea and now I absolutely love how she turned out. Her warm colors are just stunning with the rust hi-lights.
Here's how I did it!
I started with Salt Wash mixed into Dixie Belle Coffee Bean and added it as a thick texture to the entire piece.
Next, I added some dry brushing in Dixie Belle Florida Orange and DIY Apothecary
It was a little too bright, so I went in with Dixie Belle Iron Patina and Green Spray to create a rust effect at first I applied with a brush - this didnt really do the look I was going for so I grabbed a large plastic spatula and scraped the iron patina paint over the piece and sprayed with Dixie Belle Green Spray this achieved the look I wanted giving it a grungy rusty worn finish.
For the final step, the inside of the drawers were finished off with Wise Owl Furniture Salve to give the interior of the drawers a fresh new look.
