Dresser Makeover


I  AM HOOKED!

First of all...

Please let me say that this is not a paid post.

It is a heartfelt, true love, you gotta try it...post. Honest!

It started with me winning a can of Anne Sloan paint at Haven.

Once home, I searched for a piece of furniture to try.


This piece was just perfect!

I fell in love with it for so many reasons.


With my roller in hand, I gave Miss Anne Sloan a try.

No sanding...just paint.

Country Grey is the color.


This paint grabbed hold of the shiny wood like magic!


Hence...my love affair began.


Not to mention these sweet rollin' feet. love


I painted two coats and left the top unpainted.

I did sand the top and stained it with my favorite stain.


After my paint dried, I sanded it in a few places.

It distressed so well and naturally!


After a quick sanding, I rubbed on a bit of stain here and there.

Making sure to hit the edges ;)


Then the fun began...

Decorating around it!





Picture overload ahead...






Now that I have fallen deeply head over heels with this paint...

I'm searching for more pieces to try out every color! LOL

It's that good!

  3. I just finished two pieces using ASCP and I am a convert! I love how you left the top of the dresser just finished enough allowing the imperfections in the wood to show through. Really a very nice touch!

  6. A lovely piece and a great paint job you did. I've seen some that sand their painted pieces so heavily that they look horrible. Yours is nicely done.

  7. it looks amazing! I have one dresser with those rolling feet and it is one of my favorite things too. I need to try some chalk paint on my coffee table

  8. Looks great! It's funny that you posted this today because yesterday, I researched the paint and found a vendor near me. I can't wait to try it out!!

  9. You are such an inspiration, love the country grey now, nice and cool. I have tried two colors (country white and the darker grey) I bought the wax for sealing but I saw this (http://smashedpeasandcarrots.blogspot.com/2012/06/furniture-rehab-painting-over-varnished.html) so I plan to try it once my wax is finished. The no sanding is my FAVORITE. Have you heard about this new milk paint coming out? from Miss Mustard Seed, can't wait for the deets on that as well.

  10. I'm so glad to finally see a completed piece in this color! I used Paris Grey on my desk and it's a little institutional looking until I added dark wax. Thinking of using Country Grey on our entertainment center...although I may wait for MMS milk paint next month :) Love me some ASCP though!! Great job!

  11. Thank y'all! For those of you on the fence to try it out, go for it! Tiffany, yes I too, am waiting for Miss Mustard Seeds new paint collection. I had the joy of trying some out at Haven. I think I'm gonna love it too!

  13. Hey sweet girl!
    Ok, two things.
    1. thanks for getting me out of my numerical pickle earlier today..#667! :-D
    2. I LOVE that piece of furniture!!! I haven't tried the ASCP yet, but I've been thinking about it. I'm going to try and make a farmhouse table for my dining room and want the legs painted and the top stained...so this is right up my alley! :) I found the perfect legs to use at the Habitat Restore the other day on an old table for $20. Now I just have to get up the energy and find the time to build it :) I just bought some ladder back chairs from a guy on craigslist, so my farmhouse dining room should be coming along pretty good soon!
    Oh..I'm glad you liked my button monograms...I think they'll be going in my dining room too...unless I hang them up somewhere before then. I'm crazy like that! :)
    Have a great week!
    Missy :)

  15. You can really paint shiny stuff without sanding???

    Promise?

    I really want to paint my bedroom furniture, but the thought of sanding it makes me ill.

    I'm all about the paint, but the sanding...not gonna happen.

    I think you've converted me :)
