Chipping Old Paint for Beautiful Designs

by Jasmin
Sometimes, a piece is naturally *chippy* to perfection, but still lacking that finesse for the "wow" factor, so I decided to give it a hand with a little extra chipping. It is a very lengthy a tedious project, but the end results are always worth it!
The After Picture of the Chirpy Chippy Dresser. She is the only piece so far we haven't allowed to go up for sale, that's how much we love her! We allowed the natural Mahogany to show through as the wood of the tree.
The Little Mahogany Chipped Dresser when she arrived at the house....... I loved her just like that - but she was missing something .......
The latest Chip out design. We love doing these! Each drawer, after the design, chipping, detailing and layered waxes, took approx 4 hours... yes, each drawer.....
