I love this piece. It’s in my sun room which is a converted porch in a 100+ year-old home. It’s finny because it’s the smallest room in an otherwise large house and it’s the room in which family and friends always congregate.
Here is the before:
I did lightly sand it because it was a high gloss. The wallpaper is from a wall paper book I got from a paint store. The patterns are all different. You will see the difference in the final pictures.
I spray painted them silver. This is the only brand I use. I love the gold as well. Krylon makes a good silver but the nozzle clogs up on me a lot.
Next, I sprayed the entire chest with the same silver paint. Then I painted over that with the orange chalk paint. I make my own at a rate of about 1 part Plaster of Paris to two parts water. I mix that really good and then added it to the paint. Since this project I use more of the Plaster of Paris. I like it thicker.
The next step was to sand off some of the orange paint to reveal the silver underneath.
God bless and I hope you have a good day.
