Plum Patina - Boho Chest

By Sandi Zelkoff, Owner/Designer at Walnut Hill Decor in Buchanan, MI.

This 1930’s chest was given a modern new finish using blends of purple and blue with gold accents. I love how these antique dressers are so beautifully transformed!  For this finish I used Plum milk paint and Black Indigo chalk Paint, both alone and blended.  Metallic gold was used to highlight areas and Enhance glaze went over all to create a darkened version of the colors used. Lastly clear wax was used to deepen, soften and topcoat everything.  A Bohemian styled Antique indeed!
