My inspiration was this old cabinet from my parents garage that I repurposed to hold our TV. The distressing on this one is authentic! I love the color of blue with the wood showing on some parts.
So I mixed up off-white paint with some Disney's Bother Free Blue (the color I used on the crib). I started with a shellac-based primer because of the veneer. It sticks to anything, and you don't have to sand! Then painted my light bluish-green color on, distressed it, and covered with clear and then dark wax.
