Heidi from Lily Field Furniture had a custom color mixed up specially for this fantastic, stand-out piece!

Good Morning! I am beyond excited to share this dresser makeover with you today! Waterfall/Art Deco style furniture is not really my favorite but something about this dresser spoke to me when I saw it.

It sat in my garage while I worked on other pieces and thought about inspiration colors. I knew I wanted to keep the wood and maybe just paint the base. The top drawer was too amazing to cover up! The detailing in the drawer was definitely the star and I wanted to make it the focal point!

I finally decided that I wanted to do a really fun, deep aubergine color for the dresser. I contacted Country Chic Paint and had them custom mix a quart of Sherwin Williams Fabulous Grape. You have heard me say this before but this is one of my favorite services Country Chic Paint offers – custom mixed colors!

For the top drawer I sanded it down and applied one coat of Java Gel Stain and then used Natural Wax to seal it in. For the dresser itself I cleaned it off and painted 1 coat of the custom color and then sealed with Tough Coat.

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!
