This was painted with Annie Sloan Graphite and heavily sanded (with 60 grit and a smooth sanding sponge. No wax. Wax is really pretty on Graphite, but it darkens and evens out the color and I wanted these to be chalky looking and all a little different. The labels were printed, tea stained, and glued on. The feather is just for fun.
Here you can see the "before" after I started playing with colors. I originally thought I would do Duck Egg blue with red and white knobs. Also thought about stenciling numbers on the drawers, but Graphite with the labels just seemed to work.
