Hi everyone, Denise from Salvaged Inspirations here!
Learn how to layer paint and products to achieve this gorgeous Spanish Moss layered vintage dresser makeover!
Even after all these years of painting furniture, I had a nervous-excitement starting this dresser because I really wanted to do it justice.
I don’t often work on ‘perfect-as-is-pieces’ like this. This dresser required NO repairs, NO fill, NO adjustments. It was a pick-up and paint project.
Dixie Belle Paint Products:
- DBP Synthetic Paint Brushes
- Spanish Moss Chalk Mineral Paint
- Terracotta Chalk Mineral Paint
- Stormy Seas Chalk Mineral Paint
- Lavender Fields Transfer
- Van Dyke Brown Glaze
I started by giving this tallboy a good cleaning with White Lightning and then layering on Stormy Seas and Terracotta.
After the first 2 layers dried, I applied two coats of Spanish Moss.
To add extra depth to the drawers, I used Van Dyke Brown Glaze on the inside of all the drawer frames.
I used a few Prima products as well: the Royal Ann Garden Stick and Style Stencil and the Lavender Fields Transfer.
