Cait from Little City Farmhouse gave this adorable little dresser a neutral makeover in Lazy Linen for a nursery!

Antique pieces are some of my favourite to refinish. They are often worn and dated and in need of a little tlc. A client brought me this piece to refinish for her nursery. She wanted it to be painted a white grey shade – Lazy Linen was the perfect choice!

I love this colour. It’s cool tone adds a little bit of colour but is still a great neutral! After cleaning the dresser, I filled some chipped areas and sanded the surface even where the original finish was wearing away. I then painted it in Lazy Linen in my favourite All-in-One formula.

The All-in-One formula has a topcoat built in! I love the matte finish of this formula, so I chose not to add an additional topcoat. The client wanted very very light distressing, so I lightly distressed the edges just enough to highlight them.

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
