Olive Green Vintage Dresser

Tuesday, October 1, 2019

I have been on my furniture painting game this month, I don't know what it is but I have been cranking these babies out like no other!

I think it has a lot to do with all of the positive feedback I have been getting on all of my work from strangers, family,  and friends, and it really just keeps me going AND is the reason I do this.  I love what I do but I love when other people get joy out of my work too!

It really just keeps me going :)

Okay okay I am done being all mushy rn.  Let's talk about what today's makeover is.  Once again I am using a color mixing recipe from Country Chic Paint in this pretty olive color!


I have so much fun with mixing colors...except for when I mess up 😂 You'll find out allll about that in an upcoming furniture post!

(Some of the products used in this post were so kindly sent to me by Country Chic Paint, but all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own!:)))

Products Used:

Gripper Primer

I found this cool looking dresser at a local thrift store and I kinda just knew I had to have it.  It wasn't my vibe, but I have never painted a piece this shape before and I thought it would look really cool in the olive green color.

So we picked it up and brought it home and I got to work!

I wiped down the piece, and primed it with my go-to gripper primer that I LOVE using on shiny surfaces.  It is seriously the best and it is so easy to apply!

While that was drying I mixed my colors!  For this color mixing recipe I used 1 part Fresh Mustard and 1 part Liquorice.  You can check out all of Country Chic Paint's color mixing recipes here!

Next up I started painting.  You know the drill by now!  I gave this baby 3 coats and let it dry completely before applying my topcoat.

Right before applying my topcoat I used some sandpaper and distressed some of the piece lightly!

I used Country Chic's Clear coat and gave it about 3 coats!  I looooove this top coat!  It is water based, so cleanup is super easy.  It has a durable finish and is super easy to apply as well!  I highly recommend this top coat!  It has been my go-to for every piece if I am not using wax!

If you want a more durable and water resistant finish, their Tough Coat is super great for that!

I put the original hardware back on and I was done! :)  here are some pretty pics :)
