How to Paint with Spanish Moss

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.

How To:

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.

Head over to Salvaged Inspirations here for more details on this painted piece.

I wish everyone would put what paints and top coats they have used. I know it would make a difference and people like me, would buy more paint to get that particular look.

Gorgeous !!!
