A fun dresser for a preteen girl,
A little funky and modern. Dog not included. Maybe. Depends on the day.
Love the original hardware. They look like drop earings.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Florence and waxed with clear wax. Very light distressing.
A pure white dresser that is painted in Maison Blanche’s Magnolia with clear wax.
I do not usually use this color because it is so finicky. It needs to me on the right piece because it is not very forgiving.
I have applied to to other pieces that I have painted and ended up redoing it with a color. Maybe it is just because I like color on my furniture.
I had considered leaving the drawers in the natural wood because it was a pretty Birdseye maple.
And sure there are people who are shuddering at the fact that I painted it.
But they will get over it.
I wish I had been into painting when I was decorating my nursery for my little ones, it would have been much easier and affordable.
And I do like the original hardware but if you wanted to glam it up for a little girl it would be easy to do.
When your little one is no longer in diapers and can be used as their dresser.
Who woulda thunk?
Wrought Iron paint by Maison Blanche is really a nice color to work with.
It gives you the dark black color without having to add tint to make it really black.
If you have used other black chalk paints you know what I am referring to.
Annie Sloan’s Graphite is a dark gray, almost black. Which is fine if you want to finish with a dark wax to get the darker color and a little color variation in your finish. I finished a maple cabinet in my kitchen with Graphite and dark wax and you can check it out here. I really like the finish on this piece but it does require a little more elbow grease.
With the Wrought Iron I am able to use clear wax.
Neither are wrong. Both give a great look.
