The daughter of a good friend was moving this week and asked if I would like a free dresser. Umm...heck yeah!
If it looks familiar, it because I finished it's sister here, for the same daughter's wedding this past summer.
And here it is all gussied up.
Using my new favorite paint gun (which I'll share later), I sprayed 2 coats of a rich teal, almost emerald paint over the drawer faces and dresser body.
I mixed the same paint color with some Simply White to lighten it, taped, and brushed on the stripes.
After some light distressing, I sealed everything with 3 coats of my favorite, Minwax Polyacrylic in satin, and attached some fancy new hardware.
I'm normally not a "bling" kind of girl, but the girly, scalloped details of this piece asked for something special.
Photos can't capture the intensity of this color. Its a tad darker, and bit more green in real life.
I love it! So rich!
This was my first attempt with stripes. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
What do you think? Have you tried stripes before? How'd they turn out?
