It’s been a while since we’ve shown you a BIG furniture transformation! We thought we might as well come back with a BANG!!
I found this set of Dressers on Marketplace ($40 for the Pair) WHAT A STEAL! They were pretty beat up, and well loved. Nothing a little chalk paint and creativity couldn’t fix!
I chose to paint it a very very very LIGHT GRAY, with a Dark Top. I used our chalk paint recipe that you can find right here on our blog. The top is a mixture of Waverly Antique wax from Walmart, and Black Paint. I used a technique that Erin and I use often for refinishing the tops of pieces without having to use stain.
Usually, I like to heavily distress the pieces I work on, but this time I decided to keep it classic and clean. I couldn’t help but feel like the doors were missing something. I thought about several different things, but settled on one that I knew would be EXACTLY WHAT I’D LOVE!
We are part of the chalk couture family, and they have an amazing buffalo check transfer I have been dying to use. I played around with the thought of decoupaging a napkin, fabric, or paper to the doors, but I knew that might be way to permanent of a choice, and hard to redo in the future if I ever wanted to. Not only that, but I wanted to distress my buffalo check.
Using Chalk Couture paste was the perfect solution because it is as permanent as I want it to be. If I want to do something different later (I don’t see that happening), I can just sand it down and repaint the door.
Y’all when I say I am IN LOVE with the finished product on both pieces that is an UNDERSTATEMENT!
They look absolutely beautiful in my bedroom and I couldn’t be any happier.
If you all love them as much as we do, could you do us a little favor and
PIN IT FOR LATER
I mixed valspar paint samples from Lowe’s to get the color. 1 simply gray and 1 ultra white.
