Turquoise and Grey Dresser Restyled


I recently painted this gorgeous dresser a lovely shade of turquoise. 

Then I decided I wanted to add a bit of grey.

So I used a black stain solution wiped over the top and then off again to give this piece contrast and depth.

It also toned down the turquoise, creating a more blue grey shade of colour. 

And some mild distressing around the edges brought out the simple but elegant details of this piece.

And to finish, 2 coats of furniture wax to seal and protect.

The draw knobs were given a white spray paint.  Aren't they too cute!

:) Julie

  2. Wow this looks amazing. I am painting a little rocking chair and this is exactly the paint color I was picturing in my head.
