Picked up this great dresser while shopping at a local outdoor furniture consignment store.
It needed some work, but had soooo much potential!
I love it when I walk into a room and there’s a pop of color that surprises me. With that in mind, I decided to paint this piece Annie Sloan’s Arles Yellow.
After a good coat of Annie Sloan Clear Wax, I loved the color, but kinda felt like it was still missing a little “pizzazz”. So I pulled out my Annie Sloan Dark Wax, added some Mineral Spirits and made a rich dark glaze to add to the Arles color. A few brush strokes later….and Voila!
That was just what it needed! It turned out just like I had envisioned…maybe even better.
Actually decided to leave the bottom of the dresser its original wood finish. I thought it added another bit of character to the piece.
No sooner did I move this awesome piece into my home to take some pictures, it sold. And what the buyer loved the most…you guessed it…the pop of color it would add to her room. 🙂
On to the next project…
