Raise your hand if you’re ready for a great piece of painted furniture!

I have a backlog of pieces to share with you guys–there’s been lots of painting going on to keep the Studio full, but not quite as much time for blogging!

A while back I ran out of inventory to paint, so I decided to rummage around my house to see if I had anything I could get rid of. By the way, that’s one of the fun parts about this business–that you can swap out furniture once you get tired of something!

My husband had decided he actually didn’t need his chest of drawers anymore (he was able to fit all of his clothes in our new house closet–win!), so I grabbed that piece and started working on it!

Now I totally forgot to grab a before picture of this piece, but it was very similar to this one (although in not as good of shape):

It was big, and heavy, and DARK–which worked when it belonged to my husband. But I wanted to lighten it up and give it a whole new vibe, so I decided to try a light blue on it.

Fusion Mineral Paint recently released a new light blue color called French Eggshell, and I was dying to give it a try, so that’s what I went with!

Take a look at this chest of drawers, now a soft shade of light blue!

The floral accents on the drawer fronts are pieces of the Redesign with Prima Rose Celebration Transfer (one of my favorites, that I also used on this dresser here).

One of the things I really like about using these transfers is that you can cut them into pieces and rearrange them however you like. The main, central part of the transfer I didn’t use at all, so I can save it for another project!

I wet sanded the whole piece with one of these sanding pads to smooth out the finish, and it also created the perfect light distressing along the edges.

My hubby’s old dresser turned out to be a real stunner! It sold quickly to a lady who fell in love with the color and floral design 🙂
