Distressed and Layered Colors French Provincial

September 2, 2018

This dresser was a redo.  I had painted it in a mint green with Fusion paint.  It was sealed with a stain sealer too and up for sale.  Then I accidently got primer on it in a few spots.  So that was the end of that dresser staying the same.  Thank goodness the top of it did not get any paint on it so I was able to save the top from my original job of stripping and staining it all.  You can read about that in the post about the mint-ish french provincial dresser on the website. 

 

I ended up applying layers of white chalk paint and a soft metallic acrylic paint in purples over the mint. The mint stayed because there was a sealer on it.  Then it was a matter of wiping the paint off.  I used lint free towels to do the wiping off.  So I would paint on a layer of paint and then wipe it off.  I did this over and over.  Sometimes I would let the paint start to dry.  This lets the paint build up.  I also used a chalk paint in a lavender color and wiped that off too.  Then I did some distressing.  I also ended up painting the hardware the lavender color that was showing up a bit on the drawers.  

So it is a lot of layering of paint and wiping off with a dry lint free towel, doing that over and over.
