Before and After

Here is a fun little project I did yesterday. I found this little guy at a thrift store for pretty cheap and painted it. This would be a fun little jewelry box, I think. Again, I used the dark gray chalk paint so you could make designs or put lettering to label them with chalk if you wanted. I was thinking of taking the knobs off and putting them at the top of the drawers so there would be more room to write. And I used some of that trusty Sophisticated Finishes copper oxidizing stuff to age the wire.

  1. Your "after" in wonderful. I didn't even notice the wire until you painted it white. I have something similar in the attic that I must think about redoing. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Thank you! You're right - the "before" wire doesn't show up very well. It was just a solid black before I gave it the patina treatment. Thanks for the feedback!
