I’ve painted hundreds of projects using Beyond Paint. You guys have heard me talk about it hundreds of times. I bought a quart of the paint when it first came out in 2011 and have used it ever since. Why do I like it so much? No sanding, no priming, no sealing required. What’s not to love about that. I use Beyond Paint for home decor accessories as well as for furniture.
Beyond Paint For Furniture
The paint has new labeling and a new name. Instead of Reclaim Beyond Paint….it’s simply Beyond Paint.
Beyond Paint, color- Pewter
The paint is a little thicker than other paints. It’s almost like a gel and brushes on like butter. The sheen of the paint is similar to eggshell, not flat, but not too shiny either. Just right.
This is my project piece before painting. Yes, it came from My Favorite Junk Shop. I paid $40 for it. Awesome. The dresser was Army property at one time. There was an inventory tag stapled to the bottom of the dresser.
I love the style. Really popular now. Of course an update with paint and new knobs just makes it better.
I filled the original hardware holes with wood putty and drilled new holes for the fancy knobs. Who would guess this is the same dresser. I keep calling it a dresser but it could be a credenza. I removed a few metal pieces from the backside so I think it had an attached mirror at one time. So I’m going with dresser.
I painted the drawers then moved on to the body of the dresser. I applied two coats of paint. The paint dries really fast and I was able to apply the second coat of paint an hour after the first coat.
I made a short video of the paint process….

How fun is the red vintage thermos set. I found it at a local antique store and had to have it. I love red. The set was still in it’s original brown faux leather case. At $12 it was a deal. The pops of red are gorgeous with the Pewter gray. Christmas will be here soon and I bet the thermos set shows up in my Christmas décor.
I can see the dresser used as a TV stand or maybe in a foyer……or heck…..as a dresser. I took it to the shop last week. Hope someone falls in love with it and hauls it home soon.
