Using large long sturdy dresser as entertainment units is a popular trend to repurpose a dresser and have lots of hidden storage. Painting the dresser also makes it even more one of a kind. I offer FREE detailed tutorials for painted furniture & decor on my blog. Here is the latest dresser details
Teal Ombre Dresser As TV Stand
This super sturdy wooden dresser was chosen from my stock to paint to be used as a TV stand. The customer also wanted a certain shade of teal blues so chose her own and brought them to me to create the one of a kind paint job.The dresser was repaired with wood filler then power sanded smooth and scrubbed clean all ready for painting.
Dixie Belle paint in antebellum blue was the base color brushed on in two coats. Here is the first solid coat going on.
To give an ombre or blended look with another shade of blue, Dixie Belle's peacock was added around the edges and blended in.
To seal the paint, a clear wax was hand rubbed in all over except the top which first had a clear coat of poly for added protection before the clear wax.The customer thought she wanted the hardware spray painted silver but above I showed the original antique gold and she loved it with the blues so it was kept original.
To add further dimension, dark wax was added around the edges as well as kept a more vintage worn look too.
The piece turned out lovely don't you think?
