This was such a gem to find because of all the details on it. I rarely see furniture like this so it was such a treat to find this. It was originally a very dark brown. I knew giving it a lighter makeover would freshen it up and give me to look I was going for. I painted it in AS paris grey. I then dried brush on pure white in some areas. I sealed it with clear wax. You can read the blog Chalk Paint and Wax to get all the information on working with those products.
