Vibrant Splatter Took This 80's Dresser to New Heights!

This outdated dresser was going to be used by a young man. His mom wanted something different for this special guy, so here's what I did.
First I cleaned and scuffed up the laminate top, then I applied two coats of Kristi Kuehl Pure Home Paint's Cashmere (painting the laminate first helps the Vibrant Splatter adhere to any surface)
Next I randomly added my colors Blue, White, Green and Yellow. I sprayed a small amount of water over the whole surface and covered it with plastic.
Then the magic.....just used my hands to blend the colors. I removed the plastic starting at the top and pulling it towards me. Once dry I applied Kristi Kuehl Pure Home Paint and Finishes NON-TOXIC Gloss Protective Finish.
To finish up I chose Krist Kuehl Pure Home Paint's Dusk, this color complemented the top perfectly. The final step was sealing the base, for that I chose Kristi Kuehl Pure Home Paint and Finishes Satin Protective Seal.
Needless to say both mom and son loved the updated dresser!
Kristi Kuehl Pure Home Paint and Finishes are all NON-TOXIC and safe for your entire family. Check them out at

    Did you paint the hardware rose gold? That is what I did for my kitchen cabinets!

    I would paint the rest of dresser maybe black or white. It doesn't look together. I am going to try it, it's stunning.
