Country Gray Dresser Redux


My landlord picked up this adorable dresser from the dump, if you can believe it.  He had taken it to the flea market a couple of times, but it did not sell.  I told him that if I painted it, I could sell it right away at Loot and give him some of the profit.


I love the size of this dresser and the long, turned legs. One of the wooden knobs was missing, but I realized that I had exactly eight, glass knobs (the same ones I used on this, similar dresser), so I upgraded all the knobs.


I painted the dresser with my old favorite combination: Country Gray Chalk Paint with white trim.  I really like the neutral, putty color of the Country Gray and I think it pairs splendidly with items brought in from nature.  Besides being one of my personal favorite Chalk Paint colors, all of the pieces of furniture I have painted with Country Gray have sold right away.


I applied Annie Sloan's clear wax over the entire dresser for a beautiful sheen.


It was a success; the dresser sold this past weekend at Loot!

Hey, Amanda. I love it. I'm a little discouraged right now with my furniture sales. I do have to say that they are well painted (I'm a perfectionist). Perhaps they're too specific, but I can't help it. I love painting things differently. You know- statement pieces.
Fondly, Tami

Beautiful! I have a dresser just like that, it was a piece my husband's dad gave him years ago. I would love to paint it but I don't think he would be too happy about it.

Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if
blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Here is my blog post web hosting delhi

First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.

I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10
to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin.

Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

http://www.faucetsmarket.com/bathtub-faucets-c-20.html are one of the necessary things needed in a home. All bathrooms must have Waterfall faucet; there is no bath space without them. These Faucet parts help to control the free out flow of water, and even do much more these days
