It was an odd tool chest, but had possibilities.
I chose Americana Decor Chalky finish paint in Serene.
(Not paid or given free samples!)
I forgot the before pic, but you can see it HERE.
That seventies orange finish - sanded it - just took a few minutes.
Took the hardware off first.
I punched the screws into waxed paper.
Put all hardware on a screen...
... and used Rust-Oleum in Hammered Rosemary.
(Not paid or given free samples.)
It is so #$%^&* hot here, projects have to come inside for the paint to cure.
Sanded with a fine sanding sponge and a rough paper towel.
Two coats of Americana Decor Ultra Matte Varnish.
The Serene blue tool chest is so pretty, I decided it was more suited for ruffled froths of lace.
The tool chest is designed to be opened this way.
However I liked it opened from the top.
It seems more practical.
It is quite lovely sitting in the sun.
It kept its cool as I perspired way past a glowing sheen while taking pics.
Of course it is distressed.
Ready to be loaded and taken to my booth.
The serene tool chest is available at Riverfront Antique Mall.
