This is a gorgeous transformation!
First I repaired the drawers and base, then deglossed.
I brushed and rolled 2 coats of colosseum with 3 hours dry time in between.
Then I added weathered wood antique gel using a small brush to add random streaks and then used the true applicator to spread and blend. Some areas I used a baby wipe to remove excess. After an hour or so I used a chip brush to dry brush some colosseum in areas that were too heavy. This also created another shade of grey in spots.
The top has a faux wood grain using colosseum as a base coat. Then after 2 hours of dry time I used a chip brush to apply cappuccino and ran a wood grain tool through it. After 4 hours of dry time I applied graphite stain using an old tshirt rag. I dipped the rag into the stain and wiped back and forth in sections until I got an even thin coat.
The hardware is from Amazon. And I have a basket coming for the bottom as well.
Next up is a dresser to match.
