but I LOVE it so much, I thought I'd share it on the official "Day of Love!"
This dresser came to me with a bevy of other beautifies
that have also since been restyled ...
I opened the tin of Autentico Chalk Paint in Concrete and started painting!
One coat was all that was needed for this project and once it dried,
I used the Miss Mustard Seed Wax Puck
to rub randomly across the edges and areas of the dresser
that would naturally get wear with time.
This puck acts as a resist and gives a gorgeous layered look for the next
coat of Autentico Chalk Paint in Silver.
When using Chalk Paint as a wash, add water and stir
to your preferred colour and consistency.
In sanding, my goal wasn't uniformity in the finish,
there is beauty in the depth and variation in timber
and I wanted this in the finished product.
Here's how it went:
wiping it with a rag, adding water, changing brushes...
I think that's part of the fun and what contributes to a stunning one-of-a-kind result.
Don't ever forget to play and have fun.
This vintage dresser has plenty of attitude while being very style and colour neutral.
You can drop this piece into a vintage home, modern home, coastal, eclectic,
even a traditional or historic home and it
will find its way with its subtle style.
