This sophisticated black dresser was painted by Faye from Farm Life Best Life with Liquorice. Read on to find out how she did it!

As you can see, this dresser started out with great bones!

After removing the pulls, she gave the entire piece a light sanding, then cleaned it well with water and vinegar.

Next, she applied two coats of All-in-One Decor Paint in the color, Liquorice.

To give it a slightly more rustic, shabby chic look, Faye sanded almost the entire piece, focusing heavily on the edges.

After polishing up the hardware with Brasso and adding some pretty lining to the drawers, she’s all finished!
