It is Tuesday, right? I can barely keep my days straight these days. I think a vacation is in order!
Now that the barn sale is over, I’ve finally had a little time to do some refurbishing and redecorating for us. Do you recall in my Summertime Summertime Sum Sum Summertime post I showed you the little dresser we have in our living room?
I picked up this dresser at an estate sale about 3, maybe 4, years ago when I first moved here and if I remember correctly, I believe it cost a mere $30. It houses our photo albums, board games and what-nots. It’s a great little storage piece and I’ve always loved its shape and its curves. I am a sucker for pretty legs (think Chippendale, Queen Anne, French Provincial)! But this dresser felt very heavy to me in its dark brown color. So, since we’re adding pale blue to our living room and it’s lightening up the mood, and since I’ve fallen in love with the color “Louie Blue” in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, I just had to do the deed.
Here she is today:
The knobs are original and are now highlighted by the paint color
I am really happy with the way it turned out and it was nice to work on a piece for us for a change.
I painted it in one coat of Louie Blue Chalk Paint. I don’t cover a piece completely in a solid, heavy coat of paint. I let the wood come through the streaks of my brush right from the very beginning. It looks more authentic, requires less paint and it also means less sanding later. I then sanded it in all the right places, slowly looking at it as I went to judge if I needed more or less sanding in each carefully placed location. Once I decided the sanding was done, I went over it with a generous coat of Minwax Paste Finishing Wax in Natural, then buffed it with a soft cloth.
One of these days, I promise I will do a step-by-step photo tutorial of a furniture transformation. I did this last night at 9 pm (yes, I’m crazy), and because I don’t have a very good camera (gee, can’t you tell?), step-by-step pictures in the dark would not have turned out well.
So there you have it! A couple of hours of hard work on a Monday night turned in to a Transformation Tuesday and I adore the transformation!
