Jamielyn over at I Heart Nap Time inspires us with her gorgeous dresser makeover. To give this piece of furniture its own unique look, she mixed her own chalk paint using Plaster of Paris and White Raisen by Sherwin Williams. It created this very muted yellow that gives off a cozy and welcoming vibe. Chalk paint is amazing because it is so easy to get more bang for your buck. Of court the other reason it is my go-to paint is the beauty it brings out on any piece.

Kammy’s Korner gave an antique dresser a new lease on life. She mixed turquoise and a light green paint and it turned out a seafoam green. Then she prepped her old dresser with Zinnser primer and let everything dry. The edges and ornate details were sanded for a distressed look which brought out the hints of yellow. This piece of furniture pops with personality!

Beth at Farm Fresh Vintage Finds teaches us how Annie Sloan is truly the Goddess of chalk paint. Dressed in Country Gray, this chest is refreshed and renewed. She sold it the same day she finished it. Now that’s awesome! The bright white makes the drawer pulls bold.

Just The Woods

The fairytale charm of this French Provincial chest caught me by surprise. Even though it is not a larger dresser, it deserves an honorable mention. The entire chest was sanded and the drawers were painted in custom pink. The body of the chest was painted in Vintage Lace by Kristi Kuehl. The designer at Just the Woods finished this DIY project when she painted the details with chestnut colored protective wood stain.

Persimmon is a romantic and warm color. It looks fabulous on this dresser. Acrylic paint is second to the best (chalk paint) in my opinion. It evens out nicely, is easy to use and makes any furniture look professionally done.
