Come read all about these beautiful matching dressers refurbished by Kim from The Painted Poppy Studio in Cobblestone, Full Bloom, and Antiquing Wax!

Hi everyone! It’s Kim from The Painted Poppy Studio back again to show you these little pair of matching dressers that would be the perfect addition to any little girls room. These started off as an inexpensive pair of pine dressers with a really dark stain that had seen their fair share of fights…and lost.

They were pretty beat up! Every square inch of these had dents and grooves that refused to be sanded out so they received a slightly shabby/worn look with 2 coats of Country Chic Paint (chalk style) in Cobblestone.

I had originally thought of adding some accents and highlights in Vanilla Frosting but once I got these coated they were so pretty as is that I decided to leave them alone. To modify the look of the dresser a little bit, I removed one of the pulls from the top drawer and added some wooden appliques that I picked up from Home Depot.

The brass drawer handles that came on these dressers just so happen to be my least favourite to work with so instead of replacing them I opted to clean them and then paint right over them. This is something I rarely do but it made such an impact to the dresser and changed the look entirely and I was really please at how they turned out 🙂

Because I didn’t use Vanilla Frosting on the front like I had planned, I thought that I would have some fun with the sides of the drawer liven them up with a punch of Full Bloom. The combination of these two colours is so feminine and because of it’s versatility, I think that Cobblestone may just be my new go to colour!

To protect the dressers everything was finished off with Antiquing Wax. I love how it deepened the colours and picked up in all the little dents and grooves. I wasn’t able to hide them but it certainly helped to make them look like they belonged there. I also made sure to leave wax in and around the wooden applique and handles to help define them a little.
