Hey everyone it’s Niky from The House on Silverado. I am going to show you how to do a quick and easy DIY Dresser to Sofa Table, using the Basic Silk All-In-One Bundle.
This bundle is perfect for beginners wanting to start a new project. It includes all the basics you will need like Pristine Clean, a 16oz paint, and a Mini 2-inch Synthetic Brush.
- Mini Angled Paint Brush
- Pristine Clean
- Silk Mineral Paint in Oyster
- No Pain Gel Stain in Walnut
- Applicator Pad
- Satin Clear Coat
- Gilding Wax in Bronze
- Blue Sponge Applicator
- Best Dang Wax in Grunge Gray and White
- Artist’s Brushes
Step 1: Sand and Clean
First, I needed to sand and prep my piece. I planned to stain the top, the easiest way to deal with the scratches was to get out my orbital sander. We just scuff-sanded the sides and drawer fronts to remove the sheen and make sure the paint would adhere properly. Next, I used a damp rag and Dixie Belle’s Pristine Clean to remove all traces of dust and dirt from the entire dresser.
Step 2: Time to Paint
After the piece was sanded and cleaned, I decided to use the color Oyster from Dixie Belle’s Silk Mineral Paint line. Silk All-In-One Mineral Paint doesn’t require a base or top coat and is self-leveling, so it’s easy to get a beautiful smooth surface without a lot of brush strokes showing. The first coat went on in a matter of minutes.
Step 3: The Finishing Touches!
Next, I used Dixie Belle’s No Pain Gel Stain in the color Walnut on the top of the dresser. Get a little bit of gel stain on your applicator pad and apply a base coat to the entire top. Then, flip the applicator pad over and wipe the stain back to allow the wood grain to show through.
I only applied Dixie Belle’s Satin Clear Coat to the top of the dresser for extra protection, using a slightly damp blue sponge.
Lastly, I used a small amount of Best Dang Wax in Gray Grunge blended with White Wax to highlight some of the details of the dresser.
I took off the old hardware on the bottom 8 drawers and easily attached the new handles. I used my Dixie Belle’s bronze Gilding Wax and a small artist’s brush to make them prettier.
