Old Violet

. On to my furniture feature of the day!

When I saw this little lady while I was out 'picking' last week, it didn't take me two blinks to know I had to have her!! Sorry I didn't get a 'before' pick. (We already discussed by ADHDness, so no need to rehash that here, right?) 

  I am crazy in love with her lines, her rustic top, her shiny little keyhole. sigh. Love.

I painted this little lady in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Old Violet and went straight to a thinned down layer of Dark Wax, then I followed up with the Clear Wax for durability. Drawers are fabric lined, but I didn't get a photo. ;) New knobs add a bit o' flare if I do say so myself, although I didn't catch till photoshop that one of them is feeling a wee bit tipsy.

Oh well, still love her even if she is a bit of a lush. ;p

This baby has already sold. :)

Thanks for visiting,
