I love the casual, worn, beachy look!
It's very simple... all you need is a painted chest and a sander!
This chest was already painted,
all I had to do was get out my
sander to give it that worn, beachy look!
First, I take out all the drawers and sand them...
I use an orbital sander because it's quick
(and I'm impatient), and I like to see results FAST!
I make sure I sand around all the edges,
the knobs, and randomly in-between.
It's really awesome when you have cool colors
underneath the top coat that get exposed when you sand!
Seafoam green... yellow...
I love chests that have detailed sides
like this, it really adds to the charm!
