Hi friends, I’ve actually been able to get some work done while my dad is cooking up a storm. I need to go on a diet when he is gone. Seriously!
So one of the things I got accomplished was that I ventured into (for me) unknown territory. With all the furniture makeovers that I have done already, I have never painted with chalk or milk paint until last week. Are you asking why? Well the reason is mostly that I tend to gravitate to non-distressed furniture.
But for this makeover there was just no other way. To me this dresser was screaming: “paint me in chalk paint and distress me.”
|Somebody built this by hand! Look at the dove tail.|
And I don’t think without Cassie’s (Primitive & Proper) guidance, I would have ever ventured down this road. I see her fabulous chalk paint makeovers every week and just wanted to try it. After asking her what paint she used, I decided to go with CeCe Caldwell’s Destin Gulf Green chalk paint. I just loved that color of green.
After two coats of paint I waxed the dresser with Clear Liberon Black Bison Fine Paste Wax.
Check it out. I really, really like it! And hey, maybe I should name her “Cassie”!
|And my lilac bush is finally blooming. Love it so much!|
Did you recognize the hobby lobby knobs that I bought a while ago? They are the reason why I picked that green. I also added a gold Rub ‘n Buff detail to the top scrolls.
I think that I will paint more chalk paint now because it’s so easy to work with.
So what do you think?
Talk to you on Friday. I’m thinking of doing something special 😉
