Under the Stars Dreamy Dresser Makeover

Hey there, everyone! It’s Brandy from Brushed by Brandy! I got to paint this dreamy dresser alongside the ultra-talented Llewellyn Krastev of Worn to Whimsy, an absolute privilege. My customer wanted a night sky theme with a golden glow.

Materials List:

How To:

Step 1 :

We started by cleaning with White Lightning and applying 2 coats of Boss primer. I could tell by how this was cleaning, the age, and the dark color, it would be a bleeder. I applied the Boss in a cross hatching pattern for thorough coverage.

Step 2:

My first coat was a swirling of darker blues around the outside, lightening as they moved in. A pretty finish on its own!

Step 3:

Next, we added clouds to our night sky, using fluff and working them in while slightly damp. The softness of them is mesmerizing.

Step 4:

Stars were next. My secret to a starry night sky?? A toothbrush!

That’s right, used as a spatter brush, it’s perfect. Filled in with larger spots, galaxies, and fancier 6 point stars using an artist brush. I even hid the big dipper, little dipper, and Polaris on the front, can you find them??
