Heidi from Lily Field Furniture is back today to share how she transformed an old, tired French Provincial dresser into this modern masterpiece with Rocky Mountain and Tough Coat. Come check it out!
You have probably all seen a dresser like the style below! It’s a typical particle board and laminate french provencal dresser. I have done many different ones over the past few years and Country Chic Chalk paint is the perfect solution for this style to ensure great adhesion.
My client picked up the dresser at a flea market for her daughter’s room and asked me to paint it a deep grey with rose gold metallic detailing. In order to prep the dresser and make sure I didn’t have a headache on my hands I did decide to sand well and spray a coat of primer onto the laminate. Once that was all set and dry I used Rocky Mountain for the base color. It’s my current favorite grey in the Country Chic lineup! A beautiful deep charcoal grey totally transformed the dresser!

After the base was dry I went ahead and painted a special ordered rose gold metallic to create a dipped effect, I also primed and painted all of the hardware in the same metallic.
For sealer I sprayed 2 layers of Tough Coat and lightly sanded in between each coat. Can you believe the difference some paint can make?!
