Chippy and Rusty Painted Credenza

I didn't take any before pictures of this credenza, so imagine it olive green. yuck!
The top of this credenza is painted with a checkered design and trimmed in a turquoise/ green paint. The checks were hand painted with a black, then with 2 coats of Modern Masters English Brown. A layer of MM Oxidizing Iron and a light spray of rust activator finished the checks.

This piece is a very antique white, with turquoise/green cabinets, painted "rusty" cabinet panels.
A dark wax was heavily applied to the entire piece as a protective layer.
