Empire Tallboy

By Brooke Sobol, Artist at Heartland Vintage Market in Cameron Park, CA.

I painted this lovely antique tallboy chest with mirror in Persian Blue Milk Paint and gave it lots of distressing for juxtaposition of pretty and rustic. Someone before me had painted the top in a dark blue, so rather than go to the trouble of stripping and sanding it, I simply painted the top in Dark Chocolate Milk Paint for a deep wood-like look, and sealed it with three coats of GF High Performance Topcoat for a subtle sheen.
