i really like to paint furniture and i’ve had this vintage okaydresser for a even as but on no account knew just what I desired to do with it. I eventually made up our minds on painting the outside and leaving the drawers with their traditional timber grain. I hit a few hiccups alongside the way but it in the end grew to become out attractive!
here’s what I began with. I attempted adding a pop of colour by using spray portray the handles however I was once relatively getting worn out of the total look and it used to be absolutely time for a makeover!
I started out by completely cleaning the piece. All of the products I used to transform this piece have been from American Paint company and there may be quite no different prep work required when making use of their clay centered paints. Splendid correct? Ain’t no one acquired time to sand and prep! ??
I started by means of applying a fair coat to the whole shell of the dresser.
This paint is beautiful thick so i admire to use a quality spray mister with water to help thin it out a bit and follow it satisfactory and evenly. You don’t need much, just a couple sprays here and there.
After the first coat I had a little bit little bit of bleed by means of and a water ring displaying. When painting historic okayfurniture with an open grain you’re going to run into this mostly.
once I knew which areas were giving me problems I effectively sprayed them with a couple coats of shellac. These things is available in tremendous handy for rings and bleed through when you consider that i don’t care what variety of paint or primer you’re making use of, if it doesn’t have shellac in it the spots and rings will continue popping out after each and every layer of paint you practice.
After my 2d coat of paint was once absolutely dry I applied my prime coat over the entire piece. These items goes on super smooth with little to no brush marks.
as soon as the top coat was dry I applied some of their black glaze with a pointed brush and then wiped away the excess and blended it with a damp fabric. This added some stunning shading and dimension. I also used it in mild streaks across the top to carry out the grain.
is not it looking high-quality to this point? Subsequent I gave the handles a bit makeover utilising one of the same gray paint and layering on some black glaze and copper metal over that.
GAMBAR9 What do you think?? I really like the combo of the natural grain with the gorgeous grey paint! If you love this piece and want to see extra please check out my Instagram!!
