I loved this chest of drawers in sea green but after moving into a new studio, I thought that a blue one would suit better the new decor, plus I wanted a change from that green that I had before (which I loved BTW!). When I posted a photo of it on Instagram and asked if blue would look better, a few people said yes. This was an easy project again, not just because the paint was perfect, but because the furniture was painted before so I didn't need to sand it and/or prime it. I could have even gotten away with just a coat, but I decided to apply the second one, especially as the chest of drawers wasn't painted everywhere. For this project, I have only used paint, brushes and clear wax and I got the perfect piece that stands out beautifully against the brick wall. Next project: grouting the brick - I really hope I can do it; any tips, anyone?
The lovely sea green.
WIP plus my hair dipped in paint.
I love the knobs.
As you can see, the back of the furniture wasn't painted, nor the sides of the drawers and the legs. I did a better job this time as I had more patience.
The lovely blue lagoon picks up the blue accents from the throw-over which was hand-woven by my late grandmother.

The knobs again plus you can see the gaps between the bricks so they definitely need grouting.
The brick wall in all its splendor!
