Oh my goodness! When I was asked to paint a dresser for a sweet new baby girl I WAS SO EXCITED! The mother texted me a beautiful photo that had a gorgeous piece of furniture with gold leafing! This is a finish that I had been wanting to try for quite some time! I have done gold leafing in the past but never on a dresser.
Something I think you all are going to like about this painted furniture tutorial is that it is painted in DIY chalk finish paint!! My client Brittany encouraged me to make my own diy chalk finish paint. She said she had painted the dresser before with her own chalk finish paint and that is what she wanted on this piece! You never say no to a pregnant woman right!? 🙂 The paint that she used had held up great before! I was all for it! I will admit this was my first time making my own diy chalk finish paint! And it was a great experience!! It actually was better than I expected!
Are you ready to learn how to make your own diy chalk finish paint!? AND add gold leaf to your painted furniture!?
