People ask me where I buy second hand furniture. The truth is, in the last months, I haven’t bought a lot myself. Most of the furniture comes to me through friends and family. Today’s transformation is about a dresser that was standing outside a house with at sign saying ´take me I am for free´. A friend who passed the house, saw the furniture and the sign and called me straight away. She said: Adriana I found something I think you should have, you will definitely know what to do with it. That day I was home, I was available and I was 7 minutes away from this furniture, so I jumped in the car …
A very simple dresser with a nice size! It was mine. I took it home and this is what happened…
I painted it in Amsterdam Green. I haven’t seen many pieces painted in Graphite or Amsterdam Green in the blogosphere, and I know why, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint offers a beautiful range of colours, so why should we go for Amsterdam Green of Graphite? Well here is my reason, those colours make any piece of old furniture look like a million.
Once the paint was completely dry I sanded the furniture just to give it a soft finish without distressing it. At last I applied the wax, I chose dark wax to finish the furniture and to make the colour even darker.
I hope you like it!!
Until next post ;)))
