DIY / Small dresser

Happy Monday! I hope you are finally seeing sun and feeling warmth as I am! Hoping the Spring weather is here to stay!

Today I am sharing one of my newest hobbies! I love finding vintage pieces and “sprucing” them up with some fabulous paint! You can use this paint on newer pieces as well. The best part about this paint is you do not need to “prepare” your furniture by priming or sanding! I was very happy to see the sun shining today so I could get back to painting! I had not painted since it has been so cold and snowy!

I found this cute small dresser at the Pink Cabbage near me. They have the most wonderful things in this shop! If you live near Ellicott City MD you should check them out! I could not believe how inexpensive it was, $42.00!! I placed it in my room as is and loved it! I started thinking it might look could if I add a lil splash of color but I did like that it was white. My bedroom is a creamy taupe color with white moldings. I had a sand color paint and decided I would paint the front of the drawers with it. When I opened the paint can, I realized I wanted a little darker color so I added a small amount of another color I had to create this color! Once I painted 2 coats and allowed it to dry completely, I added a clear glaze. I didn’t like how it looked so I painted a third coat over that. I am very happy with the results and the pop of color added to the room! I added the original knobs back on and am content with the look but I am on the hunt for different knobs, perhaps crystal ones, hmmm….

I also added this shelf liner my husband found at Home Depot which matches nicely. The drawers are not in the best of shape so I double lined them so I could add liner up the sides some. I have been looking for vintage floral shelf liner but so far no luck at all! I am still looking, never give up!

The paint I use is Ce Ce Caldwell’s. I used 2 parts of the Georgia Clay color with 6 parts Myrtle Beach Sand. Very happy with the color! I get my paint from another wonderful shop in my area, Vintage Blue!
