Heidi from Lily Field Furniture used Liquorice to give this tallboy a strong, dramatic look. Read all about it right here!

Good Morning Country Chic readers! I’m here today to show you just how transformative a simple coat of paint can be! This dark wood highboy had spectacular detailing that was lost with it’s current dark finish. The hardware was mismatched and it needed some love!

My client was totally open to my vision for the piece. After seeing pictures of the room it would be going in we decided black would be the best choice. When in doubt, black is a timeless and always reads sophisticated. After cleaning up the dresser and patching some defects I gave it one solid coat of Liquorice. I also lightly distressed the detailing to bring it out and sealed with Top Coat. I also changed out the hardware with matching pieces!

Hello! My name is Heidi and I am the face behind Lily Field Furniture. I spend my days being a wife and mom and my late nights in the garage painting away! I absolutely love the job that I have and have so much fun with the process of thrifting and then refinishing furniture in a creative way. It’s so rewarding to see the amazing transformation that just a little paint can make!
