Sarah from Honour Design used Pebble Beach, Liquorice, and Tough Coat to modernize this sleek, stylish dresser!

Grey has been at the forefront of design and decorating for a while now and the majority of people are loving it as an easy palette pairing. It makes sense why we all love it so much… there are so many tones and variations and it creates a neutral canvas for bright and fun accessories. Whether it’s a warm or cool toned grey, light or dark, there is something about it that just “fits”.

For this piece I wanted to give it a fresh start with the perfect grey from Country Chic Paint in “Pebble Beach”. This grey is the just the right mid toned grey. Not too light and not too dark!

To begin this project I wiped off the piece of any dirt and grime. Next, I applied 2 coats of Country Chic Paint. (Remember to wait a couple hours between coats!)

After waiting an additional day after the second coat of paint I applied two coats of Country Chic Paint “Tough Coat”. This is a product I use often on pieces that will be used frequently and get some wear and tear. By applying a couple coats you create a protective layer over your paint and keep that beautiful matte look of chalk and mineral paint.

For the knobs I decided to repurpose wood knobs that were leftover from another project as well as mix in some silver ones. I gave the wood knobs two coats of Country Chic Paint in “Liquorice” as well as a coat of the “Tough Coat”.

I love how quirky this once discarded dresser is and how much mixing the handle gave it even more personality. It’s miraculous how a couple coats of paints can give any piece new life!
