Cait from Little City Farmhouse created this beautiful nautical trunk to show off two of our new limited edition colors, Sea Storm and Ocean Breeze!

Hello Country Chic Paint readers!

I am so excited to share with you this project using Country Chic’s newest Limited Edition colours! When I first saw the colours I knew exactly what I was going to do with them! I have had this wooden chest for a while now, and the new blues were perfect for it.

First I gave the chest a coat of Ocean Breeze, a beautiful surf blue colour.

I wanted the look of a lot of wear, so I chose to dry brush on the darker blue, Sea Storm. The two blues compliment each other beautifully! Country Chic has a great tutorial on dry brushing if you’d like to give it a try!

To finish it, I sanded it to distress the peaks and edges, and then cleaned it well. The All-in-One paint doesn’t require a top coat – which is my favourite part!

This chest turned out just the way I imagined it – with the perfect age and wear!

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
