This dresser was pristine when I bought it.
Not a blemish on it.
And that grain.
I was in love.
And truthfully this one gave me pause.
I was hesitant to paint.
Sometimes that can happen even to me.
I appreciate lovely wood….I have a mix of wood and painted pieces in my home.
I am not a wood hater…believe me.
And this one made me stop and think.
I waited for a few weeks before making a move as I had to discern what I should do.
Ultimately I decided to paint just a little bit of the dresser and leave as much of the wood grain as possible.
I left the top and drawers natural and painted the base of the dresser in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Trophy.
I distressed it once painted and sealed it up in Miss Mustard Seed’s Hemp Oil.
I felt kinda bad painting at first, but once I was done, I didn’t feel bad anymore.
After all, this dresser really SHINES now!
I am so happy with the end result!
I love Trophy…it is such a great grey reminiscent of the grey on a plaid wool blanket you wrap yourself in on a crisp fall day.
It is so rich and beautiful.
Truly stunning don’t you think?
He sold within hours so I knew he was just as handsome as I thought.
Thanks for reading 🙂
