This was a Craigslist find and after seeing the knobby legs and wavy-cut panels, I had to have him.
I recently purchased Annie Sloan paint and I was chomping at the bit to use it. This was the perfect piece; although the construction is wood, the top is laminate. This paint is supposed to coat virtually any surface and stick. So here goes it.
I used Annie Sloan Old White on the outside and for the drawer I used Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue. I wanted that "peek-a-boo" affect when you opened the drawer. Franklin is not afraid to show his feminine side that he keeps under drawers, if you know what I mean (**snicker, snicker**). After painting, I distressed a bit and then added Annie's clear wax. It's like butta! (butta = butter; I am originally from Massachusetts). With the addition of clear glass knobs, I think he's looking kind of fancy!
|Hello Duck Egg Blue!|
He is 21" tall, 21" wide and 28" deep and looking to fill a space in someone's home. You can check him out in my shop here.
Have a great day!
