By Retrostory in Pruszcz Gdanski, PL

This lovely Blue Bird chiffonier from late 1920's was made by me to our lovely living room. I used my favourite blue colours: Persian Blue and Halcyon Blue, both are milk paint GF and I added Aubusson Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I painted in numbers of layers and broke the colour distressed base  and went for blends and washes of different blue. Top is finished with High Performance top coat and the rest of chiffonier is finished with vax.
