This solid wood dresser was in fantastic shape when I picked her up. She was a lovely dark wood and had been taken well care of over the years. I hesitated for a moment before breaking out the paint cans. But like a good addict, I conceded in the end!
I wanted a break from turquoise, thought about a nice dark grey, but in the end I went with a mint/white combo.
This piece has fantastic hardware! Large, solid and very curvy. They just don't make hardware like this any more!
I bought some new paper about a week and a half ago and got to put it to good use! This is a floral mint/white paper and it goes perfectly with the theme.
I used modpodge to attach it - easy peasy!
I used my Zinsser primer again and tinted it a similar shade of green. I used my favorite dulux paint in satin for the body, I custom tinted using some green tint I got from the paint store
I painted out some of the trim in white, and then distressed it a bit to age it up. I also distressed the entire dresser lightly.
I think this piece would lovely in a nursery, or a room featuring neutrals or soft pastels.
And here is the before - quite the looker in her original duds, wouldn't you agree?
