This week I’ve been working on my first client project. I’m really excited! The client is my mother and the piece is an old dresser she’s had for longer then me :)
She wanted it Mint Green and antiqued.
I made the paint color myself. Turns out I had some teal left over from my TV Stand project and I just bought a gallon of mistinted Vintage White paint at Wal-Mart for $3.88. I love how my homemade chalk paint worked on my dresser redo so I decided to use my Plaster of Paris in the mix too.
I don’t think the Mint Green could’ve gotten much better. It’s perfect :)
I almost didn’t want to distress it for fear I would ruin the perfect color. lol. I spent awhile deciding if I was going to use a sander, my wood stain, or both for the distressing. I opted for sanding.
Then came the decision regarding the knobs. I got the impression that my mom wanted to stay with the original knobs. I personally would’ve went with something white or clear. This is what I came up with…
Distressed to match the rest of the dresser.
You’ll have to wait until this weekend to get the full scope…
Oh…and another one of my victims of the mint green…
I’ve been wanting to paint this ladder and it was sitting right there…it’s really cute now and will be a plant stand soon enough :)
