Before & After: Driftwood Dresser

We've been selling alot more furniture lately, so the shop's layout has been changing on a daily basis. I am always rearranging furniture and creating new vignettes (which I love doing, by the way). Several new pieces have come into the shop and this dresser is one of my favorites. Overall, it was in great shape and just needed a bit of color to make it not so, well, blah. The mirror isn't original, but I think it makes this little dresser more functional.

I painted the drawers in Ironstone from Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint. For the frame, I wanted more of a beachy, driftwood look, and I used General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects. A light sanding was all the prep it needed. The glaze drys pretty fast, so I worked in small batches. I just brushed it on and wiped it off. Couldn't be easier!

To add a bit of color, I lined the drawers with some paper from Spoonflower.

I loved this glaze and I'm looking forward to trying it out on some larger pieces. In the meantime, this dresser is available in the shop!

Thanks for reading!
