Shabby Shabby!!

So I found this great Duncan Phyfe style dresser for a great price, but wasn't sure how I wanted to finish it. So I did what I always do, which is spend endless hours on the computer looking at other blogs and Pinterest, etc - looking at pretty things. I came across a picture of a dresser that is almost identical. It was super duper distressed - not my normal look, but I decided to go for it.

Here's my Shabby Shabby Duncan Phyfe.


It had a great Mahogany top, so I sanded it, re-stained it and waxed it. I am painting a serious amount of furniture with Aqua, so I decided to be different and go with green. I put on the green and hated it, so put Aqua over it - so easy with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I did the body in good old "Old White" and then got out my orbital sander and distressed like crazy.

Like I said - not my usual look, but I kinda love it!
