Sue had a plain old dresser-
white with plastic handles.
Now it has character
and a great neutral palette
that will be so restful in her master bedroom.
It's so fun to watch it go from
To personality hardware!
(from Hobby Lobby)
My inspiration piece came from
Kelly at the Lily Pad Cottage
So for this look,
I sprayed the drawer fronts with a black primer
and just the edges of the body of the dresser.
Then I rubbed a wax candle
randomly onto black drawer fronts
and just the very edges of dresser.
These will be the areas that the paint will resist
and later be sanded to show
black under tones.
I painted the dresser white,
lifting my brush at the edges to keep
some of the black exposed.
I painted the drawer fronts with two coats
of light gray.
I mixed black enamel latex
with Olympic "Crumb Cookie"
to get my gray.
After it is dry,
sand the edges and drawer fronts with
150 grit sandpaper.
If there is more chippy than you would like,
just touch up those areas with your top coat paint.
Such a fun update!
I was thinking about
layering other colors this way.
So many possibilities!
Hope you have some fun furniture updates too,
