How to paint a Green Ombre Dresser

As many of you know I do love a good dresser transformation, so when I found this cute dresser on CL I had to have it. 
Before:
The dresser is made of solid wood and had a lot of potential.  It was a tad wobbly, so I added a support and made it sturdy again.  I love green and just felt like this cutie would look good in some shades of green.  I took out my Green Acres by  The Urban Rooster and added a little white and painted the bottom drawer, then I added white and lightened it and painted the next drawer and so on until I had all the drawers painted.  I painted the base of the dresser with one of the middle shades of green.  I distressed the dresser and then sealed it with AS clear wax and added new crystal knobs.  













I love how cheerful this dresser is!

  2. Love how the colors transition slowly from dark to light. I think the slight changes are what make it so appealing.
