Duck Egg Chest

***SOLD***
This is only my second time using Duck Egg and I love it!  The first time was because a client requested it, but I'm such a neutral color person I just never used it again.  I have two other AS blue colors that I need to try on some pieces.  This dresser was in great shape structurally, but very beat up on top and a few scratches here and there.  I changed out the hardware on the top two drawers and just painted the original hardware on the rest because I love ring type pulls.  I used Duck Egg and clear wax with a little Duck Egg and Graphite mix dry brushed over the drawers.

  2. Wow, that top was a mess! But you worked your magic and it looks perect! I'm glad you kept the original pulls, they really show off the age of the dresser. And I agree, that's a great color. I've used it several times and had it color matched to make homemade chalk paint too. Thanks so much for joining the party!
