This gorgeous stunner came along way before this stunning debut! This antique dresser dates back to the early 1900s and is a huge dresser with very ornate scroll work and detailing from the dresser drawers all the way up to it’s precious mirror!
We painted the base/bones of this dresser in Country Chic’s simplicity white paint and Miss Mustard Seed’s apron strings milk paint. For ease in preparing the milk paint we added the mixture of water to paint in an old vintage blender. Unfortunately we did not use the anti foaming additive so it was extremely foamy. We added a couple of spoons full of paster of paris and the mixture did minimize the foam enough where we were able to use the paint mixture. It was our first time ever using Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint so it was a fun and interesting experience. We’ve seen painted several pieces in MMSP’s pieces for those particularly unique vintique pieces that we want to style in an old, chabby chic style. After painting, this particular dresser left a very unique crackling and peeling affect and we just love how it turned out!
We’ll be sharing many more experiences in our blog of different paints, different techniques and tips that our followers can use in everyday practice. Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions or would like to comment, feel free to post your questions or comments.
