Remember this dresser that was in the line up to be painted?
Well, I chose to paint him with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Duck Egg. It is a gorgeous color. Although Miss Mustard Seed has some very lovely blues in her milk paint, she doesn’t quite have one with this same muted blue/green feel to it. Her Eulalie’s Sky is close, but I think it leans a little more towards blue and it’s also a little brighter. The robin’s egg blue that I custom mixed came closer, but was still a little more blue. So since I’d purchased some Duck Egg at Junk Bonanza, I decided to break it out and paint this guy.
The original hardware for this piece was brass, and I didn’t think the gold tone would play well with this cool color, so I was going to change it out. Then I thought about it and realized that since there were no missing pieces, I should try painting it instead. I think the chalk paint works better for this than the milk paint. It worked like a charm.
I added just a little white to highlight these details.
I do believe I am quite in love with this guy. Don’t tell Mr. Q!
This would be an excellent piece for storing my vintage tablecloths.
I’ll be posting him on craigslist soon, but in the meantime, if you are local to the Twin Cities and interested in purchasing this dresser, please leave me a comment. Woops! You missed it, this one is SOLD!
