Baby's Wearing Blue Jeans

Pin It
I'm quite unashamedly a 'blue jean kinda girl'.  Dressing up is fine once in a while, but my go to almost every single day is something in denim.  Finally furniture and Blue Jeans meet!
This is actually a custom mix of American Paint Company's 'Blue Jeans'.  I based this cute little dresser in APC's Navajo White, then mixed more of the white with Blue Jeans to create this pretty shade of faded denim.  Pretty much it was one coat of each color since I wanted the white to play back through.
The top had an old crackly, but thankfully still intact, leather inset.  I just painted over it also.
The hardware is also painted in Navajo White and sealed with top coat.
One of my favorite things about APC is the ability to easily wet distress.  That's exactly what I did with this chest.  I finished it all off with clear wax and then added a bit of dark wax in a few spots.
Seriously, doesn't this remind you of your favorite pair of comfy denim jeans?  This 4 drawer chest is the perfect size for a side or lamp table for nearly any room in the house.  It will be available soon at The Brass Armadillo along with all the American Paint Company paints and products necessary to create your own similar project!  Be watching for my Grand Opening Announcement.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend Everyone!
