Angie from The Painted Piano used Vanilla Frosting and Natural Wax to restore the beauty of this dresser!
This old dresser was pretty cute as is, but needed a breath of fresh air, otherwise known as a coat of fresh paint!
There were so many cute, simple details lost in the dark wood. But a couple coats of Vanilla Frosting helped to make them noticeable. I love the warm, soft white of Vanilla Frosting!
Before the first coat was even dry, I noticed several areas where the old stain wanted to seep through. Not a problem! If this happens, a quick coat of Shellac does the trick, followed by two coats of paint.
I distressed the edges and details for an authentic, worn look. I love how the details are brought right to the surface! Too cute to be missed!
Finally, I used Natural Wax to seal the dresser and replaced all of the original hardware. Clean and bright!
