A couple of months ago I painted a dresser with Miss Mustard Seed Dried Lavender Milk Paint. I turned out beautifully.
BUT - it was a huge challenge. Nothing worked like it was supposed to.
I loved that color.
It sold really quickly.
I missed that Dried Lavender dresser.
So I decided to paint another one.
If you're looking for a before picture, well, I don't have one.
But you've seen this dresser hundreds of times before.
It probably had a mirror at one time.
The finishing lacquer was bubbled like alligator skin all over so I thought that would look great with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint.
I also thought that the lacquer finish would resist the milk paint and give me some amazing chippy goodness.
It did not.
Not. One. Chip. Anywhere.
I had to be very careful not to sand it too much, so it wouldn't be polka dotted.
Because that wasn't the plan.
To have a polka dot dresser.
I think my favorite part is the top.
I stripped and sanded it to fresh wood. Then I applied 2 coats of Liberon Black Bison Paste Wax, in Walnut. The stain in the wax stains the wood beautifully and Liberon waxes have the most beautiful soft luster to them.
Dried Lavender is the most gorgeous color.
Oh, and I used hemp oil over the paint. Then I waxed every inch with Miss Mustard Seed Antiquing Wax.
The drawers are lined with vintage wall paper.
It looks beautiful with the top and the Dried Lavender.
I think everyone needs a little Dried Lavender in their life.
And if you want, you can buy this dresser at Vera's Daughter Home.
Have a great weekend everybody!
