Midnight Magic Dresser

By Amy Lenhardt, Revitalized, Northern Virginia at Revitalized in Burke, VA.

A huge garage sale. Stuff everywhere. People swarming. Furniture in pieces. There were multiple dressers and mirrors, all detached. Drawers were broken, bottoms falling off. A furniture artist’s dream. She was loaded up piece by piece, then put all back together. At the pop up where she was featured after her restoration every single person who looked at her had to rub her, touch her, and feel that satiny top. She really is that beautiful.

Deep cobalt blue makes a bold statement on this stunning dresser. Layers of dreamy blue were sealed with General Finishes High Performance Top Coat before a layer of black wash was added to deepen the color even more. The finishing touch is two coats of General Finishes Java Gel on top, sealed with General Finishes High Performance Top Coat. The result is irresistible—it has to be touched!
