My IG Builders Challenge 2016 Piece

First piece I have ever build by myself.  I decided to go with a vintage travel theme.  Drawers were decoupaged with old map look wrapping paper and then distressed a bit.  Suitcase handles painted and distressed serve as the drawer pulls.  I even rusted up the metal on them...including the tiny screws!  For the top, I decided to beat up the wood with hammer, chains, etc. and then stain in dark walnut.  On each corner of the top I placed metal brackets which I also soaked in a vinegar rust solution to age them and then attached using some decorative upholstery tacks.  For the body, I decided to go with American Paint Company paint.  It's thick and easy to create lots of texture.  I layered two colors...Beach Glass as the base coat and Home Plate on top.  In order to achieve an aged, parchment paper type look, I used dark wax.  The dark wax sinks into all the yummy texture creating the look I wanted to get.  Additionally, I stenciled the words:  Explore Dream Discover across the bottom.
