Patina Chest

By Laura Johnson-Hernandez, Owner and Design Artist at Designs by Laura in South St Paul, MN.

I’m in love with this piece and how the wood grain pops out of the finish.

I painted it in a persian blue than sealed with sanding sealer, applied pitch black glaze and sanded till wood grain appeared.  Than sealed with flat out flat for a perfect matte finish.  Lightly distressed for a farmhouse shabby chic finish.
