About This Post
Susan of Saw Nail and Paint inspires us with this gorgeous vintage chest.
"For the base coat I used General Finishes Chalk Style Paint in Key West Blue. It’s a really pretty blue green; perfect for the coastal inspired theme. I mixed in the paint additive Saltwash and used a brush to stipple on the mixture. It’s messy, but no worries because your brush cleans up with soap and water. I knocked down the peaks and let it dry. I added a 50/50 mixture of the Key West Blue and a pure white chalk paint I had on hand to create a softer aqua color. I applied the top coat, let it dry, and then sanded. In the areas that would naturally wear, like around the edges and the knobs, I sanded more heavily to reveal the darker base coat. I also let bits of the wood show through." - Susan
