Hi Glam readers! Last week, I gave you a little sneak peek at what I was up to. All my furniture restorations are nearly complete, for the moment anyway. I'll have quite a few before and afters to share with you.
Today's reveal is a dresser that really had little to no personality.
See, pretty basic.
do I hear you snoring?
It's okay, I totally get it.
It gets better.
I love the way it turned out and it's a far cry from boring now!
I decided to go with a light robin's egg blue color as the base color.
Then, I distressed it using a bronze metallic glaze and cream glaze.
I love how the layers of colors worked here. I didn't intend for it to, but this project really reminds me of the beach. The cream and brown evoke thoughts of the sand and the water reminds me of the ocean.
I've used a few different methods before when glazing and distressing and truthfully, they all work really well.
Let me know if you'd like a tutorial on these methods and I would be happy to do a couple of posts on them!
