Flow Blue Dresser


I found a great vintage dresser that needed some TLC while junkin and of course brought it home with me.  

Before:
This dresser had great lines and hardware and was in good structural shape, but it had duct tape goo and lots of dings and scratches covering it.  After a good clean up, it was ready for paint. 

I mixed up Flow Blue by Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint   and got to painting. 

After painting the dresser with two coats of milk paint, I scraped  the flakes off and enjoyed the chippy goodness that comes with milk paint.  
As I was sealing the dresser a local store owner came by and wanted the dresser.
I took a few quick pictures even though the wax/ linseed oil was  still wet and a bit shiny. 





Love the pulls! 





I love this color blue!
