Rustic Cabinet



I love the shape of this rustic cabinet.  I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in a mix of Louis Blue, Provence and Duck Egg Blue.  These three colors mix to a beautiful turquoise and are easy to adjust to a little more green or blue hue.
 

Before.


I then distressed and waxed the cabinet with AS Soft Wax.
