I shared Alisa’s dresser a few weeks ago. It is a vintage piece with a ton of farmhouse style. It will be placed in her foyer and is the perfect piece for hats, gloves, dog leashes, etc. We wanted to give it a change but keep its rustic charm. The answer was three coats of General Finishes Lamp Black, light distressing the details, new ceramic drawer pulls that complement the original keyhole drawer hardware beautifully and two coats of General Finishes Flat Out Flat topcoat!
Have a great Monday!
Simply beautiful. You are so talented!
Thank you so much, Carole!
Beautiful! I love GF lamp black, it’s a gorgeous true black.
Thanks! I love Lamp Black too – such a sharp look!
This piece is beautiful!!
I have a question… One month ago, I painted a chest of drawers for our foyer. I used GF Rembrandt Red, then AS clear & dark waxes with some distressing.
For some reason, the top of the chest feels tacky & shows smudges/fingerprints. This has not happened before.
Did I do something wrong? What can I do to correct it?
Thanks for your input!
Hi Jacqueline, I have only used GF Flat Out Flat over their chalk based paint. However, it seems to me that you may have applied a little too much wax. Take a soft cloth and really buff it well. Just buff it all out until it isn’t tacky any longer. I hope this helps and good luck!
Love it, so beautiful
Thank you, Kathy!
Impressed with how you changed the drawer pulls. The original grain of the wood seems to show through in places, but not where the nail holes were. Beautiful outcome. In the photos, the ultimate color appears midnight blue rather than black. Either way it’s magnificent.
Thank you so much. I love how the original grain peeks through! The process of filling in the holes is tedious but well worth it 🙂 Hard to capture that deep hue on camera – hope I did it justice!
Fabulous job. I have a peice exactly like this, but with a mirror. I love the color you selected, not sure if my husband would be happy if I painted ours.
