DIY Dresser Country Chic Paints
Hey guys – It’s been a long while since I posted anything and I apologize for that but it’s been crazy busy at Hello I Live Here – so to make up for it today let me tell you about our DIY Dresser Country Chic Paints today.
We partnered with Country Chic Paint to show you this awesome new chalk style paint that has quite a following already. We completed a lovely dresser of an older style that just screamed for a bright setting and Tropical Cocktail color and Simplicity white, followed by a coat of the Tough Coat Clear, which lived right up to its name.
This DIY Dresser Country Chic Paints was started by cleaning first with a little cleaner. I let the dresser dry completely and wiped down with a second wet cloth so there would be no OxiClean left that could attach to the country chic paint, I do this with every brand of paint I use regardless, it’s just a good practice to start with a clean furniture – and this is the reason why – look at how stunning this!
Then I got started – I painted the sides and top of the dresser first with white creamy, Simplicity color. It went on like silk, was easy to control, very low streaking with the brush, and dried in an amazing chalk like finish. I completed 2 coats on the dresser, not because the first coat did not cover, but because it is my preference to paint every piece this way, regardless of the expense. I love rich furniture and 2 coats complete this for me.
While drying, I moved on to the drawers where I added the Tropical Cocktail color of a turquoise blue. It’s amazing, vibrant and rich on the piece. It too moved on the brush like silk, and dried with that wonderful chalk paint finish we have all come to expect from other brands.
Once the piece dried, I coated the whole thing with 2 coats of tough coat. It worked amazing, dried tough, but gave a low shine finish you want for cleaning, but that lovely appeal you want when your furniture is making a statement. Check out those burlap handles from Hobby Lobby 😉 fancy!
