I decided to keep the farmhouse dresser simple. By simple, I mean classic white. My favorite creamy white is Annie Sloan Old White. Here is the dresser as of today!
Below is a post that I originally wrote back in April of 2015. You can see some pretty Annie Sloan Old White transformations. I hope to have the farmhouse dresser ready to share tomorrow!
Annie Sloan Old White is a fantastic soft white.
By itself it can give a soft shabby chic look.
It can create that great Whitewashed Wood Finish.
Or, Whitewash Brick with it!
With dark wax, it becomes aged and old.
As a highlight, it really pops!
Annie Sloan Old White – perfection!
Hi Suzanne. Watching your tutorial on white washing. It looks as though your piece of furniture has to be stripped of paint in order to achieve the white wash effect. Is this correct?
Hi Kathy, yes, on this piece the finish was very bare. If your piece has a shiny finish, I would suggest first sanding it (not to the bare bones but at least to allow the wash to adhere). Best of luck!
Thanks so much for the dark was tutorial, Suzanne! Now i feel brave enough to try it…your work is beautiful!
Thanks, Ruby! Give it a try and have fun with it!
