I guess the reason I had been ignoring it for so long was that I couldn't exactly figure out what to do with it. I originally had planned to keep it two-tone, but instead it kind of evolved into multi-tone.
I used the Plaster of Paris Method, which was $6.00 at Michael's and $3.00 with my 50% off coupon. I took some celery green paint (left over from Elaine's living room) and some true blue acrylic and mixed it to make a greenish/blue color.
The paint gets thicker the more plaster of paris that you use. My first layer was a yellow mixed in a little thicker. This way I avoided priming. Then I used another layer mixed a little thinner with the green-blue that I made. The third layer was dark stain. I then went back through and highlighted some of the colors.
I love the paper on the inside of the drawers
All in all I'm pretty sold on this plaster of paris paint idea, especially on these shabby/ paris apartment chic projects.
What kinds of paint techniques do you love?
