I had this dresser in my bedroom that I inherited from my grandmother. I painted it years ago and haven’t touched it since. I haven’t been in love with how it looked and could never find the perfect spot for it in this room. So I busted out the paint brush and decided to see if we could make it work!
Here’s a quick before shot of it once I moved it into it’s new spot. The color still wasn’t working for me!
I gave it one quick coat of Country Chic Paint in Hollow Hill. This has been my favorite green color and I knew it’d be perfect for a spring/summer color.
You can see it needed on more coat, so I let it dry for a few hours and applied a second coat of Hollow Hill.
Once I had painted two full coats of green on the dresser, I decided to add some dark wax to antique the piece just a little!
I used my Country Chic wax brush and lightly dipped in the dark wax. I apply it heavily in some spots and then wipe the extra left on the brush in the spots I don’t want so much antiquing in. It looks scary at first, but once buffed in, everything blends together!
And the after!
I decorated this area for spring by adding some vintage floral prints I found at a shop in town, and this adorable flower market sign from The Reclaimed farmhouse.
You can shop Country Chic Paint here! They have so many colors to choose from and is my favorite paint to use when transforming furniture!
