Beach Flowers Inspired Dresser

By Rachel Gingold, Owner at Artistic Home Studio & Boutique in Alameda, CA.

This vintage mahogany dresser was a hot mess when we found it by the side of the road.  We stripped off the ugly paint job that was hiding its beauty, and inspired by a walk on a local beach, decided to give it an artistic makeover.  Thanks to 2 coats of GF Stain Blocker Primer, we were able to paint over Mahogany with white paint without it turning pink!  The base was painted in a mix of Antique White & Snow White Milk Paint.  The artwork was a mix of Patina Green MP, Key West Blue CSP, Snow White MP. and blended in an ombre-ish style.  Flowers & beach grass were hand-painted using a variety of GF MP colors.  The drawers were painted in Patina Green MP.
