Fira Chest Makeover
Materials: Fira Chest, knobs, paint, paper, sandpaper
Description: I sanded it first then applied a white wash of acrylic and water. Then I drilled holes in four of the drawers for the knobs. I pasted some paper on the drawer fronts, which I wasn’t really happy with. I painted them with a mixture of blue acrylics, which I changed for each drawer and sanded the paper away. I added the knobs and then brushed some black pigment ink over the whole thing.
I did the same thing to two magazine holders I had bought as well. I think I’m happy with the result, although I change my mind so often they may get made over again:)
