How to Paint a Springtime Tallboy

Hi everyone, Denise from Salvaged Inspirations here!

Spring is officially here and I couldn’t be happier!

I ‘mashed’ a few colors together (green, blue, yellow, grey, mermaid dresser) and came up with this layered spring inspired beauty. What do you think?

How To:

This tallboy dresser had a slick surface and I knew if I were to give it a light sanding, I would have had really bad bleed thru.

So, I used Slick Stick for the paint to adhere easily to the surface.

This dresser was painted with a layered technique which I share here.

Layering doesn’t start out looking good but the end result has a rich vibrant depth with a variety of colors peeking through.

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