I had so much fun giving a new life to this antique highboy! I pulled out all my painting supplies, and went to town... I had to do a lot of patching, and sanding first. Then gave it a base of heirloom tradition Alexanderite, then layered on General Finishes Patina, Coastal Blue, and Annie Sloan Antribes with a spray bottle, sponges, and yes I finger painted! 

I sanded back in areas, and sprayed in areas with patina again to finish. After this piece was finished of with an antiquing stain, then sealed with General Finishes Flat out Flat. 

I added gorgeous large antiqued mirrored glass knobs to pop off this beauty!
