I taped all around the edges of the door and drawers and gave it a coat of a softsage green chalk paint McClains Chalk paint. Here it is with the first coat.

I then gave it a coat of thin white paint which I wiped with a wet paper towel.

Next I used some graphics, courtesy of The Graphics Fairy, and transferred using the Mod Podge technique. Here I am waiting for it to dry.
