Custom Aqua Dresser

By J Hemry, Owner at Keepsakes Redefined, LLC in White Lake, MI.

This antique dresser was hand painted in bright aqua for a fun new look. The custom color was created using blended layers of General Finishes chalk paints in Key West Blue, Bone White, and Summertime Blue to accent the beautiful bow front shape. The elegant carvings on the sides were highlighted using silver leaf gilding wax to match the brushed nickel painted pulls. The top was stripped, sanded, and stained in General Finishes java gel stain and sealed with their Gel Topcoat for extra protection and a smooth satin finish.
