This pretty dresser was given a stylish new look by Andrea from Crossroad Creations with Hurricane, Graphite Glaze, and Natural Wax!

I’m obsessed with deep moody colours currently and I think Hurricane is the perfect shade to pull off this look! I’ll detail the steps I took to achieve this finish so you can add some wow factor in your own home!

The first thing I did was sand the dresser to remove the shine and used a coat of primer to give the paint a great surface to stick to. I painted about two and a half thin coats of the all-in-one formula in Hurricane using the Country Chic Paint oval brush. The finish came out so smooth!

I wanted the details to pop a bit more but did not want to distress the finish. I wanted the end result to be darker so I used the Graphite Glaze, applying it with a brush and then wiping it back with a damp cloth until I was happy with the result. I love how the details stand out now and how there is more movement in the finish. The last thing I did was apply two coats of the Natural Wax and buffed the dresser to a soft shine.

I was originally going to change the drawer pulls to something a little more modern but instead I polished up the original hardware and I love the contrast with the deep colour! I’m so glad that I kept them for this dresser.

The dresser drawers were in really good condition so I left them original, but I did line them with some fun paper as a surprise!
