Black Distressed Chest of Drawers

Paisley Ikat Dining Chair

I sanded the chest down with a rough grit sandpaper then removed the dust with a damp cloth.  I gave the chest two coats of black paint.  I distressed just the edges heavily then added a coat of polyacrylic for protection….. it went from dark and dated to looking like it came from a high-end store!


The Ugly Before

Before Paisley Ikat Dining Chair

Finished Project

I’m in my mid 40’s, mom to one grown daughter, Katelyn, and a grandson, Dawson. He is the light of my life!! I am with the man of my dreams and he spoils me, as well as helping along with the furniture when I need help moving things in and out. My other hobbies include photography, scrap booking, reading and of course, decorating my home! My days find me in the office, painting furniture, decorating my home and when I’m lucky, shopping!
I hope you’ll follow along with me on this journey called home.
