DIY: How to Get this French Country Finish - the body of this dated French Provincial dresser was painted in Annie Sloan's Aubusson Blue, distressed and waxed, the top was stained and sealed and the hardware was spray painted, turning this piece into a treasure! What an awesome transformation!!! - via Hartwood Roses: Big Blue Dresser, the Reveal
For this piece, I started with one rough coat of Annie Sloan's Versailles followed by one coat of Old White. Next, I distressed all of the edges with a fine grit sanding sponge to reveal bits of the green as well as the wood grain.
