Painted dresser

Mums very old dresser getting a new outfit

Off to mums on a cold but bright Sunday afternoon. Mum has had this dresser from when I was young. My instructions was to turn it into an antique, shabby chic statement piece… Yay my favorite painting technique. So here we go. The dresser is in excellent condition and the sanding was easy.


After sanding I brushed it down and gave it a good wipe down with sugar soap and water.


I primed the surface with a waterbourne sealer and filled little dinges with filler, left it for 2hrs and gave a light sanding. Its winter here in Auckland and very damp and cold. Paint needs tempertures higher then 10degrees to cure so in she came into mums rumpus room.

Thank you for viewing my blog. I am a mother of two beautiful girls and passionate about creating a fabulous space to be inspired by everyday. Strong believer in anything is possible if you keep tremendously interested in it and love and believe in yourself.... I made my blog as a way of helping others get inspired and also be inspired by others creations. I love finding old, boring pieces of furniture and giving it back its former glory.... to tell its story once again. My style is more of boho chic and also love French country. I love crafting. Finding old picture frames and giving it a new purpose and painting anything with detailing and character. Please feel free to ask any questions and I look forward to this world of blogging If you would like to connect me via email connect davina_foon@yahoo.co.nz
