The denim was dresser was in high demand over at the shop, so we had to do it again! This piece was another summer church sale find, it was a little worse for the wear, but it's a SOLID (read heavy) wood piece and I knew it would clean up just perfectly. The little turned legs are so cute.

The base color on this started a little more blue-green than the original denim wash dresser, and I've got to say - I love how this came out.
Step 1. Prep and paint - remember your base color is always the brightest, so the final finish isn't dull.
Step 2. Color wash with Coastal Blue Milk Paint.
Step 3. Glaze with Pitch Black Glaze. This allows you to go as dark as you like - but it really adds some depth with this step.
Step 4. Dry brush with Seagull Gray Milk Paint. Just a little is all you need but this highlights it just enough.
I really like this finish paired with a wood top. It gives it the classic look, and tones down the overall color a bit. The top of this was so scratched, but with a good sanding - it's as good as new!
Be still my heart - look at that color combo right there... oh my.
The top was stained with my favorite combo of 50/50 General Finishes Antique Oak & Walnut Water Based Wood stain mix. It's just the perfect warm wood tone, not too yellow, not too dark.
There's a full video tutorial of this finish available for you in my shop, you'll get a full supply list, and step by step instructions on how to re-create this finish. It's something you can totally do.
Until next time,
