Update a Dresser with Sea Glass

Watch as we take this tired but amazing looking dresser and transform it into this lovely piece. What stood out to us first was all the drawers and different sizes it had. So many options this could be used for. Our first thoughts was that it would be an amazing front entryway piece or could be used near a kitchen.

Since the piece was in good condition and we had a vision in mind, we bought the piece. Our first step was to take off all the hardware and get it ready for staining. We decide to stain the top with No Pain Gel Stain in Walnut. This stuff goes on so easily and is nice to work with. Quickly the piece starts to come to life.

Next we decided on Sea Glass. We used Dixie Belle Paint’s brushes for this project. These brushes not only apply a good amount of paint evenly. They also clean up nicely. We used this color on a piece previously and the feedback on it was amazing. So here we are again using that color! The paint goes on so smooth and easy to work with that in no time, I had this piece painted and ready for the next step.

Next step was to clear coat it. We went with Clear Coat in Flat. This dries nice and clear. It goes on very simple. Just a few shakes of the bottle and then open. All done!
