You know I love my blues, whites, and greens, but I can’t seem to resist sneaking one yellow piece into my booth at Lucketts each year. And I decided, this year, it would be this piece…
It was a pretty little dresser, but the hardware was a bummer. One of the handles had been most likely lost or broken and was replaced with something that just didn’t work. At first glance, you might not notice, but if you look a little longer, one is clearly larger and more ornate than the others.
So, I removed the hardware and gave the piece a light sanding before painting the body in Mustard Seed Yellow and the drawers in Farmhouse White.
I had some issues with red bleeding through in just one spot, so I sealed it with Tough Coat before applying the second coat.
I wanted to leave the top unpainted, but it needed a little freshening up. It had a pretty patina, so I didn’t want to strip it entirely. Instead, I gave it a light sanding and the applied some Hemp Oil to hydrate the wood and bring out the richness of the patina. It doesn’t cover all blemishes, but it does make it look worlds better!
When the paint was dry, I lightly sanded it with 120 grit paper, allowing the paint to chip and flake randomly. I sealed it with Tough Coat and replaced the hardware with some ceramic pulls that have been hanging out in my stash and happened to be the perfect fit.
I found that wooden checkerboard during my shopping trip last week. Isn’t it a great piece?
The paint on this little dresser chipped and flaked just perfectly on this piece.
And the pulls are just the cherry on top! I purchased them on clearance (with extra 40%) from Anthropologie a few months ago.
The accessories, along with the dresser, will be coming to the Lucketts Spring Market as well!
Tomorrow, I have more painting, sewing, styling, and photographing on the to-do list…
