Blue dresser make over
Hey everyone hope you are all well. I haven't blended a piece in so long and really felt the need to blend some colours together. This piece has a subtle blend of jitterbug, vanilla frosting and liquorice.
First i scuff sanded the dresser and fixed anything that needed fixing or filling on the drawers using wood filler and 220 grit sand paper.
I then cleaned the whole piece and the mirror with vinegar and lemon solution, making sure all the dust and small particles were pixked up with the paper towel.
I used my Country Chic Paint oval 2" and 1.5" paint brushes to apply the different colours to blend. I also used a spray bottle of water.
I like to have a base coat of paint when i blend sometimes depending on the piece and how old it is. This dresser i painted two coat of liquorice first then lightly sanded when it was dry so i had a really smooth finish. Country chic paint when lightly sanded becomes so smooth its amazing.
I then painted two coats of jitterbug and while it was drying i sprayed water on the middle of each drawer and used my small paint brush to swipe a small amount of vanilla frosting. I then sprayed water of the vanilla frosting and used my paint brush to blend it in leaving a highlighted area in the middle of each drawer and sides.
I added a bit of liquorice on the edges and legs to create a dark shadow.
Once the whole piece was dry i used my sprayer which i use mostly to spray on my topcoats. I applied the clear coat to seal. I did two coats allowing dry time in between. The hardware was last and i made sure my mirror was shiny and clean .
Then you have your finished piece. Thank you for reading
