As most of you know, I have a thing for painting dressers! I found this great one at a local thrift store and it had to be loaded up and brought home.Before:
The dresser is structurally sound and has great bones, but was pretty dinged and scratched up. Berger by Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint had just come in the mail and I wanted to try it on this piece. Berger is a soft blue/grey and I thought this dresser would look stunning in it. After mixing the powder into paint, I painted on two coats and let the chippy magic happen!
I helped the chippiness along by scraping it with my spackle knife. Miss Mustard Seed's White wax had also come in the package, so I decided to use it on this piece too. This wax is wonderful and so easy to use. I dipped my wax brush into the wax and then brushed it on the dresser and wiped it in/off with a cotton rag.
I love how the white wax gives the dresser a washed, muted look. It makes it look worn and soft sort of like driftwood.
