Just because it's small doesn't mean it's easier to Paint

Wow, it's been awhile. I've been busy painting, among other things. Remember this:


Well look at her now........



This was incredibly labor-intensive, due to my perfectionist
need to paint almost every nook and cranny.The only areas not painted 
are the bottom of the chest, 
and the backs of each drawer.
I used 2 of my favorite Annie Sloan
chalk paint colors - Provence blue and Versailles.
I thought they'd marry well to the bright
retro gold drawer lining.
So many details on this piece,
to paint, sand, and wax.
I even painted the tiny pulls. Oy.
I finished off the details with hints of gold wax, 
just to highlight the contours.

I painted 2 small accent tables in the time
it took me to paint this piece.


I really love how this turned out,
and I've listed it in my Etsy shop.
