Tim Burton Inspired Painted Chest of Drawers
I have recently moved house and have been busy redecorating trying to make this "house a home"
I've been busy stripping layers of wallpaper, cleaning, painting walls & murals - and also furniture!
There was an old chest of drawers in my bedroom and I really disliked it's style, so I decided to paint it to match the room's theme (black & white monochrome with little blasts of red)
Here's what the piece looked like before painting
I started by painting the entire piece black
(Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint - Graphite)
I then painted the inside of the drawers a deep red
(Annie Sloan's Chalk Paints - Emperor's Silk)
And I finished the inside of the drawers with a rough textured coat of Dark Wax
(from the Annie Sloan Range)
to give it that rustic, aged look
Here's what the chest of drawers looked like upon completion
(*NOTE: Needs to be finished with a clear wax, to protect it and to give it a nice, soft sheen finish)
