Sailor Blue, Crisp White and Wood-Boo Hoo and Awesome

I picked up this 5 draw chest and after some time decided I wanted to do a natural wood and paint design .It was certainly a Boo Hoo piece that needed a new image, a fashion consultant,  a new story teller.


First, I had to sand those decals off and get down and see what I thought about the wood. I had to be very selective of the draws to be painted and those to be stained because not  all the draws were good looking enough to handle the natural wood look.
While I was deciding what stain to use, I decided to play around with my dark wax , Fiddes Rugger Brown wax. http://www.fiddes-usa.com/.

A quick coat and buff told me this was it . A second coat and buff sealed the deal ... or rather the wood.
I was thrilled with the results and look forward to another natural wood project just because of this product. Yes, this was just a simple wax applied with my wax brush and buffed. LOVE!!!!



I used Sailor Blue Chalk Country Paint which you can find on my Etsy site link here . These paints are my best friend.
This seems a bit bright. The finished piece is actually Sailor Blue and is closer to the picture just above this . And these white knobs ...oh sooo perfect.


We have a full calendar of workshops scheduled for the new year including Chalk Painting Beginner's, Paint  a Piece Party, Empowerment Stones Harmony and Balance, Mosaics and more.   I hope to be seeing you in the New Year . Happy Holidays.
