Cast Iron Dresser

Heidi from Lily Field Furniture gave this dresser a striking new look with a custom color, Cast Iron!

Did you know that Country Chic Paint offers custom color mixing? That means if you have a favorite color from another paint company Country Chic will gladly mix you up a quart in their awesome chalk formulation. It’s one of my favorite things about the company! I have had this done a few times and every single time they have matched my color swatch perfectly!

Recently my Mom approached me about painting an old dresser that has been in our family for ages. It needed some TLC to bring it back to it’s glory! She wasn’t sure what direction she wanted to go color wise and so I painted several swatches for her to think on. This is a good idea if you want to see how different lighting/times of the day will change the appearance of the paint. After a few days she still wasn’t sure and so she told me just to do what I thought would look best.

I decided on SW Cast Iron (the middle drawer second from the right) but in the Country Chic Paint Custom mixed version. It’s the perfect Olive color that’s not too green and not too grey. It’s one of my very favorite colors.

After painting it I went ahead and distressed the detailing and sealed with a top coat. I absolutely love the way it looks now! Such a difference!

Here is a photo to show you just how awesome Country Chic is about getting the exact color:

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.

  1. I have had a very hard time finding a sealer that won’t yellow white chalk paint. Any suggestions on a product that won’t do this. Thanks

    1. Hi Valerie,
      You’re in luck! Both of our top coats (Clear Coat and Tough Coat) contain absolutely no ingredients that can yellow. The only time they can cause any discoloration is if they react with a contaminant on the surface of your piece, but as long as it’s properly prepped you’ll get a beautiful, clear finish!
