Two Toned Vintage Eastlake Dresser

Tuesday, February 25, 2020

Hi Everyone!

Soooooo I am SUPER excited about this post because I am obsessed with how this piece turned out! I have been dying to get my hands on an Eastlake style piece of furniture for forever, so when I saw the listing for this piece I knew I had to scoop it up!


So, I found this piece on FB Marketplace and drove about 45 min in rush hour traffic both ways to get it.  I NEEDED it so I was not about to pass it up!  I mean this piece is gorgeous and has knapp joints? How could I pass it up?

( The products used in this makeover were so kindly sent to me by the team over at Country Chic Paint, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own)


So I started off by sanding down this top to raw wood because I new I wanted to do a white wash on top.  The finish came off super easy so this barely took me any time, thankfully because it is COLD out here!

Next I brought it inside and removed all of the hardware and escutcheons (key hole covers) and got to cleaning.  I scrubbed it down and used an old toothbrush to get into all of the details to make sure it was clean!

Next I started mixing my paint.  I used some leftovers of previous colors I've used and created this deep eucalyptus color.  I used Evergreen, which is from Country Chic's color mixing recipes, and Pebble Beach to achieve this look.  I did about equal parts of both colors and then added touches of green to deepen it to my liking!

I taped off the pretty Knapp joints to avoid getting paint where I didn't want it! Next I started painting the piece.  I gave it 3 coats and oh my goodness you guys, I swear Country Chic Paint has the best coverage, it is truly incredible!

While that dried, I grabbed my Limestone Glaze and applied it with my painting sponge.  I just worked in sections applying it and wiping it back with a clean cloth.  I did about 4 coats of this to get the white wash effect I wanted!

Going back to painting, I painted around the scalloped edges of the joints to give it a fun pop when you open the drawers. Details matter!

After everything was dry, I sprayed my CCP clear coat on, doing 2 coats.

I put my hardware back on after applying my gold leaf rubnbuff to freshen them up and it was done!  This was such an easy makeover, but I am in LOVE with how it turned out.  I wish I could keep it for myself, but I am sure someone else would love to have this in their home!

Here are the close ups :)
