Green and Gold and Bold

It is time for a Furniture flip for February for the Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest 


This months theme is a "Make a Statement" and it is sponsored by   DecoArt   .  



Disclosure: DecoArt provided me the paint for each of these pieces, but all opinions are my own.

I found this French Provincial Dresser by Basset at the local Goodwill Store and thought it would be a great piece to make a statement with.  
Before:


I could have just refinished this in a soft Frenchy color, but I decided to go bold and sort of bohemian with it instead.  I had received New Life by DecoArt and it is a very Springy Green.  I  painted the dresser with two coats of the green, and I found the paint easy to use and it had great coverage.  I had also ordered the Deep Brown Creme wax from  DecoArt


 After the paint had dried, I sealed and aged the dresser with the Creme Wax by painting it on to the dresser and then wiping it off/in with a cotton cloth.  I love how the creme wax made the finish smooth and not tacky, and it dried very quickly.  


I wanted the dresser to have a "wow" factor to it since the green is so bright and I decided to add some gold. 
I pulled out Pharaoh's Gold Metallic paint by Modern Masters.  This is a bright shiny gold metallic paint and I thought it would be great to use on the details for "Bold" look.  


I hand painted the gold on the details with an artist brush and I love the POP!  




The last step was adding the hardware back on and taking some photos!  















I think this dresser would "make a statement" in any room! 

This BOLD style and color is out of character for me, but I love how it turned out and that is one thing I like about participating  in the Fab Furniture Flipping  Contest, I get to learn and grow in ways I wouldn't by myself!

  7. Hate to tell ya, but do not like the green and gold. White with turquoise where the gold is would be far better to me. Or even a pale blue with some highlights...sorry!
