Royally Refreshed Java Dresser

By Royal Reincarnations, Owner/ Designer in Rosenhayn, NJ.

This absolutely stunning dresser is part of a set fit for royalty! I began by using a custom made chalk paint with Sherwin Williams Katabonic Winds. Several coats of java Gel Stain were applied to darken and compliment the piece.  To give it age and character I used GF Black Glaze. Getting inside of all the small nooks and crannies proved to be a challenge that paid off in the end! Using the tiniest paintbrush; I applied and delicately blotted each crevice. To further enhance the elegance of the set I accented with silver leaf. All hardware has been coated with silver leaf as well. I then sealed with GF HPTC satin to ensure a lasting finish!
