Shabby Chic Dresser

Monday, September 5, 2011

Ok I admit I am a little obsessed with this color!  I just think it is beautiful and I had 1/2 a gallon sitting in my garage and I thought it would be perfect for this garage sale dresser we picked up for $20 bucks!


before...




after!


I just loved the details to this dresser and the hardware was already a perfect fit. 






I used a glaze instead of the walnut stain I usually use to give it the antique look.  I found the glaze so much easier to work with and I will definitely be using it in the future!  To see a complete how to click here.

That is beautiful. The dresser had great detail to begin with but your paint and antiquing really brought out it's details. And the hardware was a great touch too.

I have an old dresser I want to redo and this is the perfect color combination. Could you tell me what color you used as the base coat and what glaze you used? Thanks!
