Carrie from Thirty Eighth Street created this beautiful grey by mixing a couple of her favorite Country Chic Paint colors. Can you guess her recipe?

Hi Friends! Do you gravitate towards grey furniture? I sure do! Today, I’m excited to show you how we warmed up a chest of drawers by mixing a few Country Chic Paint colors together.

I found this dresser at a local yard sale. It was missing some hardware and had an orange-honey colored stained finish. I saw right through that and decided to focus on those adorable bun legs! Since the price was right, I purchased it and dragged it home.

I wanted a really warm dark grey color for this piece so I applied Dark Roast for my first coat. Dark Roast is such a great base color. Should I have wanted to wet distress this piece, I would see the dark brown/grey color peak through instead of the honey color.

Once Dark Roast was completely dry, I mixed 1 part Dark Roast with 2 parts Nocturnal and created a really rich grey hue with green undertones. I changed out the hardware and took some detailing off of the middle door to simplify the piece. Then after 24 hours, I applied 2 coats of Tough Coat.

I had such a great time playing with colors and mixing paint for this makeover! A little bit of paint and some new hardware really changed the look of this dresser!

Carrie {Thirty Eighth Street}

Hi! I’m Carrie from sunny Southern Arizona and blogger at Thirty Eighth Street. I live in a house full of rumble tumble boys and paint is my nail polish. I love the process of repurposing, reusing and recycling unloved furniture and turning them into show stopper pieces. I’m a firm believer that it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to decorate a home. My mission is to demonstrate this, one piece at a time!
