Hand painted florals

By Chelsea Evans, Furniture Artist at Apple Blossom Way in Salem, UT.

Hand painted florals give this set a one-of-a-kind finish. Painted in Sweet pickins flour sack & peach with hints of color in the floral designs. The milk paint helps to give texture with its chippy crackled bits.

The sides of both the dresser and nightstand were painted in Sherwin Williams Navy blue, and hand painted using Annie sloan pure white, duck egg blue, olive, and emperors silk. Using a small brush and the end of a pencil eraser I went to town! 


Sealed with sweet pickins matte topcoat.
