How I Painted a Mid-Century Furniture
I will be sharing with you today, how I painted my sister's dresser by painting it with neutral color partnered with raw wood and black hardware.
I cleaned the dresser first and removed the hardware. I kept the hardware and save it for my future project.
To remove the old finish, I used a paint & varnish stripping gel and brush it all over the old finish.
Once the gel was ready, I used a putty knife to scrape off the old finish.
I re-cleaned the whole piece and removed the remaining rests of the strippers.
Then I sanded the whole piece carefully revealing the natural wood.
I painted the middle of each drawer with a custom "latte" paint I made. The color is warm yet looks sophisticated and easily can harmonize with any color or design.
The body is also painted with the custom paint I made and I used spray paint to get a silky clean finish.
The old three knobs were painted black and I drilled holes in the center of the drawers for the newly updated handles.
I really love the latte color combined with the natural wood.
Here's the before and after! Thank you for reading my tutorial! I hope it inspired you and kindle some ideas for your future projects. Happy Painting Friends!
