I'm really getting excited about getting back into painting furniture. I made my usual trip to my favorite local shops and came across two tall boys right next each other. The price was right, so I snagged both of them.
Here is the first one.
Other than missing a few pieces of hardware, it was in excellent condition. Which meant no prep work! Just a light sanding to make sure that my paint sticks:)
I used Restful by Sherwin Williams. I have been obsessing over this color and thought that this dresser was perfect!
As I have said before, I sell most of my furniture on local Facebook groups. I asked everyone if they prefer the look of dark wax or clear wax better. About 95% of the people that answered, prefer clear wax. I was kind of shocked. To me, it looks much more authentic if it has that "dirty" look to it, but we are in the business of selling, so I just used Annie Sloan's clear wax.
I added some new hardware that I bought at Hobby Lobby.
I couldn't capture the true color of it. It ended up looking more blue in the pictures, but its actually green.
