Right before Christmas a client brought me a dresser that she wanted painted for her shop.
This dresser is well made and has great details and hardware, but needed to be a better color. Her only criteria for this dresser was that it be a light color, but she left everything else up to me. I love having the freedom to paint a piece the way I envision it.
I made home-made chalk paint from Ooopsie paint from my local paint store-I am calling it Beach Glass Blue. I painted the dresser with 2 coats of the blue and then painted the details with white using an artist brush. I slightly distressed the edges with my spackle knife and then I sealed the dresser with AS clear wax. After I put the gorgeous hardware back on, my client picked up her dresser and was thrilled!
