Marshmallow Cream Dresser


Another dresser, I know, but I love to paint them!  I found this dresser a few weeks ago and knew it could be gorgeous again. 
Before:
I fell in love with this dresser because of the hardware!  It really is gorgeous and I knew it would be the focal point if the dresser were white.  Now, white is not my favorite color to paint dark furniture because it takes sooooooooo many coats, but I bit the bullet and got out my Marshmallow Cream by  The Urban Rooster and started to paint.  After 3+ coats of white, I distresses the edges slightly with a sharp spackle knife and sealed the dresser with AS clear wax.  The last step was adding the jewelry of the dresser, the hardware!



Roses and Hydrangeas

LOVE










The hardware now pops against the white

Cute little detail on the bottom of the dresser

    1. Thank you Marie-I like to have a little distressing on pieces because perfect is to hard to do and I think things look better with some wear.
