In my last post about this dresser (you can see it here) I was about to mix up some paint. My client wanted a custom variation of Annie Sloan French Linen. By that I mean she liked the color but wanted it lightened just a bit. I mixed a little Old White in with it to accomplish this.
Next I applied two coats of paint onto the dresser….
and the drawers.
I love using FrogTape to tape off the sides of the drawers. It sticks really well and I’ve never had paint seep through under it.
Next I put the drawers back in.
Why is there tape hanging off the drawers? I’m so glad you asked. I like to put the drawers back into the base when they’re all painted and wax the piece as a whole. That way I can insure that it’s evenly painted and waxed. I put the tape on them so I can move them in and out easily and then add the hardware after it’s all waxed.
And there you have it. All painted and ready to go home.
