Bohemian Painted Dresser

3 Materials
Last month I painted a dresser with bohemian vibe by giving it a very artistic paint job. What was once a regular, traditional style dresser is now a work of art with loads of storage. The dresser came with a huge mirror that I debated whether or not to paint it to match. I'm so glad I went for it because the mirror really made the piece. See for yourself!

I love painting like this because I can have complete, creative freedom.  The base color is a deep teal chalk paint and a blended in lighter turquoise, I then layered on the accent green colors.  Distressed it and gave it multiple coats of poly, sanding between coats as always for a super soft smoothness.

    You definitely made the right choice to paint the mirror. It "completes" an already fantastic job!
