By Tracey M., Owner/Upcycler at Red Geranium Restorations in Gower, MO.

This little vintage lady went from boring to VaVoom! by outfitting her in a shade of Behr paint called "Burgundy" converted to chalk paint.  She was lightly distressed and given a dark glaze with Minwax Dark Walnut stain to add depth and mystery to her appearance.  Her hardware was sprayed with Rustoleum Oil-Rubbed Bronze and she was protected with General Finishes top coat in Flat to give her long life.
