This lovely teal dresser was painted by Faye from Farm Life Best Life for her daughter’s bedroom with Jitterbug, Tough Coat, and Hemp Oil!

My girl Jenn has been waiting on me for MONTHS to transform a couple bedroom dressers for her. The wait however isn’t ALL my fault. Here’s the thing — Jenn simply can’t make up her mind.

First she wanted the colour ‘Bee’s Knees’, then ‘Cheesecake’, then ‘Vanilla Frosting’, and most recently ‘Jitterbug’. I however can’t blame her for having struggled with making up her mind — with so many charming Country Chic Paint colours to choose from, how does one decide?!

I chose the colour ‘Jitterbug’ for one of my most recent transformations, and Jenn instantly fell in love with it: “MUM! You have to do my dressers in Jitterbug! It’s definitely my new favourite!”

Of the 2 dressers that I’ll be transforming for her bedroom, I started with this french-style, low-boy dresser. It was handed down to Jenn years back (with mirror, and corner-piece), and ended-up in our garage a couple years ago — needless to say it was a “tad” dirty when I brought it into my loft to start working on it.

Bird poop, fly poop, cob webs and grime don’t however scare me. After a lil’ cleaning, some minor prep, and some exquisite Country Chic Paint products — this lovely low-boy is once again charming and JUST for MY girl!

With much enjoyment, my late-night hours over the past couple weeks went like this:

  • Removed hardware
  • Gave her a darn good cleaning
  • Applied 2 coats of Country Chic Paint’s ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in the colour ‘Jitterbug’
  • Applied 1 coat of Country Chic Paint’s ‘Tough Coat’ ~ for some top-notch protection
  • Applied 1 more coat of Country Chic Paint’s ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in the colour ‘Jitterbug’
  • Applied 1 coat of Country Chic Paint’s ‘Hemp Oil’ ~ for a lovely sheen
  • Installed new hardware
  • Lined drawers with a charming adhesive ~ for a final sweet touch

And here it is, a dresser JUST for MY girl! Maybe not perfect to some, however sweetly imperfect to me — just like life, furniture doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.

Next up for my girl from me — finish up the mirror that goes with this dresser, a tallboy dresser transformation to match, freshly painted walls and trim, a much needed new door with frame, and perhaps a few new decor items for the final fresh touch. However please be patient with me Jenn— I promise I’ll get it all done for you eventually.

I hope you visit again! My #farmlifebestlife awaits more simple living, generous loving and constant learning — graced with an abundance of country chic character and sweet imperfections, both for me and for YOU! ❤
