Create Holiday Inspired Furniture

Hi everyone, Denise from Salvaged Inspirations here!

I found this vintage dresser on Facebook Marketplace which has become my go-to for finding furniture — other than my curb-finds of course. hehe. It’s part of a vintage bedroom set.

I used a layered paint technique with red, black and gold metallic. Holiday inspired!

How To:

I started by giving this piece a super good cleaning and then a light sanding. I didn’t use any primer or stain blocker because, with these dark colors, I wasn’t worried about bleedthrough.

I also tried something new with my painting technique. Rather than add the dark around the sides and outer drawers like you usually see, I darkened the middle of the drawers. I used Coffee Bean and this rich dark red. It reminds me of something I saw when touring Dundurn Castle years ago. It looks regal and old world. What do you think?

And these details. I just can’t get enough of them! This Metallic Gold really brought them to life while adding to this old world finish.

Honestly, I just feel like putting a huge red bow around it because this dresser looks like an elegant gift!
