I am LOVIN' this one...and keepin' it!!
I do LOVE it...but, I am sending this one home with my friend, Kim.
She has just moved into a new home, painted her room a grey and HAS TO HAVE THIS!!!
This is the best before picture I have...
just your plain ol' maple dresser in great condition.
So, I just gave it a quick coat of primer...
After that dried...I gave the dresser a quick coat of Behr Ashes...a really light an pretty grey.
Trying a new technique....I rubbed soap on the areas that I wanted the grey to show
through once I sanded.
Yes, soap...LOVE the results!
Next, I painted the dresser with Behr Atmospheric...one of my favorites!
After the paint dried (it really doesn't take long it has been about 100 degrees daily!!)
I gave the dresser a once over with my sander.
LOVIN' the layered look...see the white and grey peeking through??
I am not a huge fan of wax...I like it, just like to use a brush on clear.
But, because I had rubbed this dresser with the soap....I thought it was a good idea to use wax!
I think I renewed my love for wax....on CERTAIN pieces!!!
(Definitely not on a dining set...yep, I learned my lesson there.)
I love the layers....
Yep, I could keep this one...but, I (and my hubby as well) am happy
to see her go to a loving new home!!!
Come and get 'er, Kim!!!
Have a great week!!
