The original wood hardware make this piece look very Art Deco, which wasn't the look I was going for. After removing the hardware, patching up any major spots and planing down the drawers to slide and fit nicely, it headed off the the sanding booth!
I really didn't know what I was finish I was going to end up with. After a base coat of a pretty blue/gray color I did a black glaze.
I softened up the black glazing by doing a SUPER light whitewash over top of that then followed that with a soft champagne metallic glaze. Didn't really want it to be too metallicy, but did want a little something. Few coats of clear lacquer sprayed on and it is good to go!
I keep all of my old hardware and found the perfect pieces for this piece. Love how it turned out!
