Miss Fancy Pants

I'd like to introduce you to Miss Fancy Pants. I found her at a local thrift shop for a decent price. She has lovely details and she's in great shape. She just needed a little paint job to rid her of that orange stain she was strutting around town in and that's exactly what she got...

a paint job. In Turquoise, of course.

I'm working on my next piece and I'm trying to venture out of my turquoise-aholism. Hoping coral will be the color of choice. Enjoy the turquoise while you can.

I used Olympic One paint but color matched Behr's Bermuda. She has about 5 coats of wipe-on poly. It was my first time using it and I was unsure how durable it would be since it was so thin. However, the finish is holding up very nicely after 5 coats.

I lightly distressed the edges, drawers, doors and legs. Then used a mahogany stain on a Q-tip to darken the wood showing through.

I cleaned up the hardware she came with and re-used it. 

You can find her for purchase in my Etsy shop.
