Turquoise Dresser


I mixed several different Annie Sloan paints to make this awesome turquoise. Provence, aubusson and florence made the perfect hue. I painted the hardware graphite and waxed them. All the drawer guides were loose so I had to reinstall. Not gonna lie.....it was painful. I toned down the turquoise by watering down the graphite paint and gave it a dark wash. I LOVE the finished product.

    Congrats on a project well done! I just finished a similar piece. I hope I can find a new home for it as well. Mine is priced on the high end at $525. No offers since posting; probably time for a serious price reduction.

      Great job! Pricing is THE hardest part about selling furniture. I consign so 40% is gone off the top.....but if I didn't consign I wouldn't sell much. I have sold several pieces on facebook so that helps.

    I remember this style furniture from the 60-70;s. I always thought it was ugly, but have seen several re-do's that came out cool, including this one. May have to try it myself on some that my mom has.
