BEST BRUSHES FOR CHALK PAINT, MINERAL OR CLAY BASED PAINTS

ANNIE SLOAN COUNTRY GRAY & VERSAILLES SIDEBOARD MAKEOVER



This Mid Century Modern Dresser was screaming for a makeover! I envisioned taller legs bringing it to the perfect height to repurpose as a sideboard in my dining room.


As you may know, most mid century pieces are covered in a glossy veneer. With any other type of paint, you would need to strip or prime. Not with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, which is of course why I've been using it for 20 years! Latex based paints will peel right off, even those people claim to be "chalk paint" by adding ingredients to it. Those are still latex based paints and will always act and look like latex paint!

With this piece, I decided to go with
Annie Sloan Country Gray
, which is a neutral color that is often overlooked! I love it. I decided to give it a little pop by doing the middle section in Versailles.

I added legs from a different project to make it the perfect height as a
Sideboard!

Because I love detail and curves, which mid century modern pieces are lacking, I also added a statement
drawer pull and backing. It gave it just that extra special touch it needed!

I forgot to get a full "BEFORE" but you can see the process below!

Lots of distressing, clear wax and I'm in love with the finished piece!
