Green Chippy Milk Paint Dresser




At the local Flea Market I spotted this great old dresser and had to have it.  The drawers were a little wonky, but I knew it could be stunning so I bought it and brought it home.
Before:




I sanded the top and rubbed it with AS dark wax.

I mixed up some Niagara Green milk Paint from Homestead and started to paint away.










Love the hardware!

Chippiness at its BEST!


I love the variation in Milk Paint!




I Can't get enough of Milk Paint!

  5. she turned out gorgeous, darrielle! i recently noticed that particular shade of green on the homestead site when i was searching for milk paint colors for a little dresser i just re-did. so much better when one can see it on a larger piece instead of a little square sample. and with the darker word showing up in the chippiness - delicious!!! i actually ended up selecting mms "dried lavender" and am really happy with the color. detailed it out with her white wax. have you used either? i have to say, i'm kinda hooked and already searching for my next piece to transform. probably a table that i have. anyways, found you on the niftythriftythings link party. cheers!

  11. Great finish - - I've always liked just solid wood but I have to say the color helps that piece tell a story. You did a fantastic job. -Carole
