This chest of drawers had great bones but just needed a fresh makeover.
Teal Chest Boho Makeover
First things first…I cleaned the piece then removed the hardware and scuff sanded.
Now it was ready for paint.
I chose a mustard color from
Wise Owl chalk synthesis paint called turmeric (which is like a mustard) for the first coat. Now yellow is going to take a few coats as it’s not as saturated as other colors.
Once the entire piece was painted I did something I do often.
I shifted gears and decided to add teal over the yellow.
This color is called Siren Song also from
Once I painted two coats of teal I distressed back the teal to reveal the mustard coming through here and there.
I love this weathered look.
Lastly I used Wise Owl salve to seal
Once I was finished distressing I used rub n buff in antique gold on the existing hardware. It compliments the ornate details and the flow.
With the distressing the yellow shows through in some places and I love the outcome.
This piece gives me some major boho vibes and it’s ready for it’s new lease on life. Find me on Instagram painting all the things.
