Experiment part one

These drawers were opp shop rejects.

The top is damaged,
and one of the drawers is missing a handle... but I think it has potential. It's a nice shape and there are panels on the side. And, the price was perfect for an experiment!!

I took off all the handles. First a light sand, then an undercoat.

Then one coat of matte black paint.

Another coat of matte black paint (can you see the difference?).

The paint looks very matte once it dries.

Then, I dry-brushed on brown paint to give it an antique finish.

It's not finished yet!! Stay tuned for another installment!
