Chipped Paint Cabinet

Add a worn look to a new table.

British paint authority Annie Sloan painted this matching pair of rather dull and fairly recent reproduction bedside cabinets and then chipped the paint to add a distressed look. To balance the cool tones in the room, Sloan added warmth to the pale Country Grey cabinets with a narrow decorative line around the top of the ledge and around the drawer front, painted in diluted Burgundy.
