Junky to Funky- Vintage Dresser Painted Turquoise and Distressed With Simple Green.
It’s hard to believe that this piece….
is this piece…..
Remember the beat-up junky dresser a friend gave me?
This is it.
And this mirror came from the Nashville Flea Market.
I mixed two of my turquoise paint colors together and brushed on some paint.
As you can see I didn’t cover the dresser completely with paint.
Now this is the part you will laugh at.
I really hate sanding with a sander lately because of the mess.
Sometimes I use a wet shop rag straight out of the can and wipe the paint off just after it dries.
I was fresh out of shop rags so I grabbed a dry shop towel…sprayed the dresser with Simple Green and wiped off some of the paint.
Easy distressing technique.
I can hear it now….you did what….doesn’t that hurt the paint…no it doesn’t.
As I’ve said before….don’t be afraid to experiment.
It’s only paint.
I have a hard time taking photos of mirrors.
I was under the carport snapping these pics when the cold front started coming through.
You can see my hair blowing in the breeze.
I love the curvy details of the mirror holder.
The mirror was only $10.
I purchased the white knobs at Habitat Restore several months ago.
Just because I like to be different… I didn’t paint the top drawer.
I spruced it up with a coat of hemp oil.
Total cost of project, approximately $12.
Do you think I should paint the other drawer?
You can leave me a little note below.
I love hearing from you.
