Layered Chippy Goodness

It’s no secret that I, like most of you, love a chippy finish BUT do you know what’s better than chippy paint?  Layered chippy paint, of course!

This piece came to me with a beigey finish over medium toned wood {and it had gold accents}.  I knew that after I painted and distressed it the different layers would show through so I decided to use those to my advantage.  In fact, I decided to add in a layer of green just for fun!  The end result {after lots of layering, sanding and waxing} is a piece that looks like it’s lived through several generations.
